What is the name of your state? I live in Illiinois and my husband's grandfather just died and his grandmother is wondering if she is finacially responsible for a van that he was buying even though her name is not anywhere on the vehicle registration or on the contract?

If she did not sign the loan agreement, she is not responsible for the debt.

But, the lender will repo the van. Does she understand that?

Technically, grandfather's estate is responsible to pay his bills. Does he have an estate and will it be probated?
