Husband has taken a lien against some property that is willed to his son. If he dies, who's responsible for that lien
i agree with the prior response. If husband has separate property (not subject to a divorce) and has a lien against the property, he can leave the property to his son subject to a lien. When he dies, his son takes the property subject to the lien, assuming all the formalities of perfecting the lien have been taken. There is an exception to separate property if one spouse contributed to its acquisition or maintainence or the remaining estate is not sufficient to maintain the spouse. Assuming the premuptial to be hald valid, this would counter-act each of these exceptions.
