    My Brother passed away recently without a Will He had very little of value apart from a few pieces of furniture and personal items plus a motor vehicle. He had a Debt to a Bank of approximately $13K

    He was renting an apartment and we have taken all his belongings to storage.

    We figure we would sell what he does to contribute to the cost of his funeral.

    As there is no Executor and No Will and the value of my brothers property is just a few thousand dollars, certainly under $10K are we at liberty to sell the items to pay for his funeral?

    Who is responsible for my Brother's debt to the Bank?

    I think that's all that comes to mind, ThNK YOU

    Not you.

    Have a chat to the lender - it may be that there was some kind of insurance product attached to the loan.
    Make an appointment with a manager level person in a physical branch.
    No point trying to do this stuff with a third party overseas call centre

    Actually Tim there was Insurance attached to the Loan but apparently my brother cancelled the insurance a few months ago, which seemed strange the Bank would allow that but it happened
