I had a debt I still owed $900.00 and the person

Customer Question

I had a debt for which I still owed $900.00 and the person died. His girlfriend (MY NEICE) feels she should have the money to pay for repairs to her vehicle because the decease had said he would do that for her. I have now lost my sister (my last family member) because of this. I do not feel I have to pay her anything because my debt was with her boyfriend not her. What is my legal status on this?
Thank you, Valerie

The answer from a legal point of view is that you owe the Es tate the money. You certainly don't owe it to her but the debt does not die when a person dies. So you actually owe the estate that money.Let me know if you need any further clarification.
