debts on estate
« on: Aug 17, 2010, 07:35:00 PM »
Hello i was wondering if someone could help me, ten years ago i was given the chance to purchase a property but i had to be quick, i was going through a very acrimonious divorce but still married my solicitor devised a plan where my cousin put her name to the mortgage but i made all financial payments, deposits, renovation costs, and mortgage, the property coming to me when i was ready.
earlier this year my cousin died suddenly, intestate, her daughter has probate, and i think had designs on trying to snatch the house, however, i have just been informed that my cousin died with over £60,000 of debt does this mean that my home, still in my cousins name, is at risk from these debts
