I have a home equity loan and through an error on the banks

I have a home equity loan and through an error on the banks behalf, they no longer hold any collateral interest in the property. I no longer own the property, they were paid in full when the account was closed and they subsequently urged me to use the equity line.

I have just inherited my mom's estate, including her home.

I have just inherited my mom's estate, including her home. First, when I change ownership on the house (and mortgage), do I have to do through it like it was a new loan, or can I assume it.

Can those creditors come after the house or bank accounts once they're in my name?
