Extent of Liability of Heirs for deceased's Debts in Jordanian Civil Law

Ahmad A. Al-Owaidi


I have dealt in this  research  titled " Extent of Liability of Heirs for deceased’s Debts in Jordanian Civil Law" whereby it appears that liability of heirs for deceased’s debt is limited to what they received from his estate, it also appears that not everything inherited by heirs will be considered part of the estate. I have also addressed the time ownership of the estate passes to heirs and the jurisprudential dispute about it as well as the position of the Civil Law. It is evidenced by provisions that estate passes to heirs upon the deceased person’s death. I have also dealt with the effects and consequences of determining the time the ownership of estate passes to heirs, it appeared that there are important results and consequences for determining the time the estate is passed to heirs. I have also dealt with the rule of the deceased's postponed debt, and the rule of dispositions of an indebted estate property by the heirs before and after its division, and the discrepancy between the estate creditors' rights, and the rights of those disposed to by heirs or one of them. The principle is in the primacy of attachment by the creditors, or the registration of the disposition by the persons disposed to in the real estate, as for movable property, the principle is in the possession whenever it is bona fide and has a valid ground.

Keywords: Liability of heirs, deceased’s debts.
