Yes, and if that is the case, then the person who receives the property subject to the mortgage would have to continue paying it, pay it off, or refinance in their own name or the bank would foreclose on it and sell it to pay the mortgage.
But under federal law, a bank can't call a mortgage due if the borrower dies and someone inherits the property and continues to pay the mortgage.
