Question

I lived with my partner for 20 years and he recently died. I am now receiving notices in the post and on his mobile phone asking for payments on some debts he had.

Am I responsible to pay his bills?

Claire

Answer

Claire,

I am sorry to hear of your loss.

The only way you are responsible for your partner’s debts and bills, would be if your name is on the account in addition to his.

You may want to speak to those he owed and inform them of his death.

You are not liable for his accounts.

Regards,

Jon
