What happens when someone dies owing money (allegedly!) ?

 

I have a friend whose husband has just died (allegedly!) owing 25K + to various banks and credit cards.

 

None of the debts are in friends name (and most accrued before marriage).

 

Will it be just a matter of writing letters to OCs including copy of death certificate, telling them to write debt off?

 

Husband had no assets - council tenant with very few personal possessions.

The Executor should write to all the creditors informing them that there is no Estate & that they will be receiving zilch. His wife is not responsible for his debts, end of.

Kewl.

Wife is executor - and I've just discovered today that the 200K life insurance policy is payable directly to wife "in trust" so doesn't become part of estate.

 

I will be writing some letters for her in next week or so.

 

I think she'll be happy.

The creditors WILL try to con her into admitting the debts you must warn her of this - Also I suggest you have her give you a 'letter of authority' permitting you to deal with this aspect of her financial affairs - that way you may be able to stop her receiving distressing demands many of which will be addressed to her deceased husband

Forgot to add that when they discover there is a trust fund that will incentivize them into action so as it's not part of the estate there is no requirement to disclose it
