Hello, thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I can help with this.
No, you do not become personally liable for his debts to creditors etc., or to pay his funeral expenses. However, these things would normally come out of his estate, which might reduce the inheritence that you would otherwise have received should he pass away with these debts hanging over him.
Does that still apply if he has no money at all when he dies, I know that he does not intend to leave myself or my brother any inheritance as he said he intends to spend all his assets on holidays and fast living, which we can see for ourselves that is the case.
If he has no money at all, then you don't become liable. His debts would die with him.
Thank you for your help, that sets my mind at rest.
