What happens to the mortgage when someone dies?

My elderly neighbor passed away last week. What's gonna happen to his house and mortgage? by dgatwood145 from Grandin, North Dakota. Oct 9th 2019 Reply

Hello. Is there surviving family? If so they can continue to pay the mortgage until they decide what to do with the property.

If no family members can be found or no will and/or trust is available connected to the deceased, the estate will go to probate in that particular county.
