The day of a person’s death is the day the inheritance is opened. If there is more than one heir, they are jointly responsible for the debts. The creditor has the right to demand payment of all or part of the debt from all of the heirs jointly or separately. “, explained the lawyer.

According to him, if property worth 3 million rubles is inherited, but debts amount to 5 million rubles, the person who accepted the inheritance owes 3 million rubles to the creditors of the deceased.
