As Probate Judge Rosenberg stated, you will not be personally liable for any claims related the underlying debt beyond the value of the real estate, unless you reaffirmed the mortgage note.
However, you should consult an attorney regarding the specifics facts of your case because this answer is provided solely for informational, educational, and guidance purposes and would be different if different facts exist.
