If you own a property in the TRNC or have assets here (eg a bank account), we strongly advise you to have a will prepared in your name here.  Even if you have a will elsewhere (in the UK or another country), it is advisable to have a will in the TRNC as well, specifically to cover your assets here, especially as partners/cohabitants do not have the same rights as partners in the UK and many other countries.

In addition, it is important to review your will periodically, to ensure it reflects any change in your circumstances or wishes.
