My father passed away in Oct 2015 and the estate was distributed in June 2016 after the account was lain for inspection. Soon afterwards, the executors said that he owed SARS R34k, and that we have to pay them back. If the executors paid too soon, and did not warn us that they had not received the final SARS account, are the heirs liable? Or should the executors be liable, as they neglected their duty? We do not have access to the funds, as it is tied up in property,so this is a huge setback to us.
