Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Your relative should raise a concern with the credit card/loan companies and is entitled to see a copy of the signed agreements. If their signature has been forged, this is fraud and they would have a right to contest that the debts are repayable. As regards ***** ***** no debts of their deceased partner can be attached to the property and if they died without leaving a large enough Estate, the debts are written off. I hope this assists and sets out the legal position. If I have helped, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer. Kind Regards Al
Hi, thanks for you reply. Under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, all debtors are entitled to see the signed Agreement, and they should also explain that they have doubts they were signed by him/her. You are correct in your understanding concerning the property- if the Deeds weren't in the name of the deceased, the deceased's creditors can't make any claim whatsoever against the property. Many thanks for rating my answer. Best Wishes Al
Hi, you should report it to the Police.
