Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Have you approached the executors of the estate please?Alex
It makes no difference whether or not they are co-operative. They cant settle the estate unless all the debts have been paid.
You can apply for a charge on the house but this needs to be done before the estate is dealt with.
You would need to apply using form N379:
The Court will list the matter for hearing and decide whether to make the charge final.
But the estate is liable for the debt before it is distributed.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
You have a Court order, if its distributed without being settled the executor is personally liable.
Does that clarify? Alex
