liability after a death
(Saint Paul, MN)
If a person dies and leaves a check for a person to cash to take care of funeral expenses, would that person be liable to any debtors? The person would not be named executor. There is no life insurance and significant estate to pay unpaid debt upon death. The home is underwater so would just be left for the bank to take. The person who dies is single without children. The house and credit is all under just the deceased name.
