Repaying the deceased's debt to the Real Estate Development Fund before fulfilling the will, unless one of the children repays it

A: If the case is as mentioned, the debts should be paid from the estate or else the loan is to be transferred to the liability of whoever is able to pay it among the heirs. Those who will be responsible for settling this loan shall later take the money they paid from the estate. However, if no one agrees to do so, the loan should be repaid from the estate itself even by selling the house, the subject matter of this Fatwa, which was constructed through the bank and is mortgaged to the bank until the payment of the debt. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
