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?
