Find Out If There Are Any Debts And Liabilities Against A Property

We have been asked a series of questions that we have compiled and summarized:

As a rule, a person’s debts do not go away when the person dies. Those debts are owed by and paid from the deceased person’s estate. By law, family members do not usually have to pay the debts of a deceased relative from their own money. If there isn’t enough money in the estate to cover the debt, it usually goes unpaid.

Can a debt collector foreclose on your house? The short answer is no, a debt collector cannot take your house. However, a creditor whose loan is secured by your house can foreclose on the loan and take the house, and depending on your state laws, a debt collector without a security interest in your home may be able to put a lien on it.
