1. I'm asking about Belgium law
2. I'm in San Francisco
3. The estate is now taken by the pre-deceased's wife's family - they are claiming as surviving brothers we owe money on the apartment - based on succession laws in Belgium - because there are no surviving children - as surviving brothers we owe whatever debt is owed. No an estate was not open for my brother in CA
