I am the personal representative over my dads Estate in Columbia

This answer was rated:

I am the personal representative over my dads
Estate in Columbia SC. My father purchased
Hearing aids on April 26, 2013 and he died
July 1,2013. Creditor has filed. A claim with
The probate court. Should I pay the claim and then
Donate them? Or see if they will take them back
My name isXXXXX have been a licensed attorney for over ten years and will be assisting you today.

You can do either, depending on their return policy. If they will take them back that would certainly save the estate money for something that otherwise would have little after market value. There is no hurt in asking.

However, if they are outside the company's return policy, the estate will be responsible for that bill before any assets are distributed. Otherwise you as the personal representative would end up being liable for the debt.

If you have more questions please feel free to ask. I'll be happy to answer them. If you do not, please do remember to rate my service in assistance to you today.

Thanks!
