Siblings will not inherit the debt of the deceased unless, as I PREVIOUSLY ANSWERED YOUR INQUIRY, the siblings are tenants too obviously they have to pay the rentals. If the deceased has property then the landlord can go after the property in the estate proceeding. But estate proceedings is already a complicated matter.
