What Happens to Debts when a Person Dies
When you die in the UK, your debts will be repaid from your estate before any assets are distributed to your beneficiaries. If your estate doesn’t have enough assets to cover your debts, the remaining debts will usually be written off. However, if you have joint debts or debts secured against specific assets, such as a mortgage, those debts may pass on to the co-signer or the person who inherits the asset. It’s important to note that the rules can be complex, and it’s a good idea to seek legal advice if you’re unsure about your specific situation.
