Family debt passing on?

Hi hope someone can give some advice.

My mother-in-law is German but lives here in UK & has done for 40yrs.

Her brother has recently died in Germany & apparantly left loads of debt (his estate didn't cover amount owed).

Creditors have tried pursuing his sons in Germany but they have refused.

My mother-in-law has just received a call from her sister in Germany, to say the creditors are now going to pursue the brothers & sisters of deceased so she should expect a letter.

Her sister has said that if my m-i-l also refuses the creditors will then go after her daughters, including my wife (who incidentally has never been to Germany & never met the deceased!!!).

Does anyone know if this is correct?

If this was the case then surely she can also refuse until they come to the end of the line.

This might be different in other places but here in the UK a person's debts die with him unless some of his family has given guarantees.

True I suppose.

Next in line would be my unborn son, although if they wait 3 weeks or so until he arrives, they could then write to him :lol:

Exactly as far as I know does happen, even between partners/spouses

It really shouldn't affect someone living outside of Germany [or any other country]. How can you be responsible for debts accrued there? Just tell them it's okay if they win the world cup and call it quits lol
