Under what conditions can an inherited debt be refused? (Choshen Mishpat #107)

Answer:

This question is a little general in nature.

The principle is that inheritors are obligated to pay their father’s debts, provided they inherited enough funds to pay the debts. A creditor can also collect from the estate of the deceased.

However, if children did not inherit sufficient funds to pay their father’s debt, they have no obligation to pay the debt.

If you have a question beyond this, please submit again.

Best wishes.
