HI, is there anyway to get back money loaned to a person who just passed away, if got proof of debt in message/sms? What's the procedure? And within how long or period we must take action? Thanks.

    When a person passes away, his debts must be still be paid after paying off his funeral expenses. If there are any assets left, they will be part of his estate; you may then consider lodging a caveat against his estate before probate is granted. If there is nothing left, his relatives are not liable and the debt dies with the deceased.
