EPT - Estates, Powers & Trusts
Article 12 - ACTIONS BY CREDITORS AND OTHER PERSONS AGAINST DISTRIBUTEES AND TESTAMENTARY BENEFICIARIES
Part 2 - (12-2.1 - 12-2.5) RULES GOVERNING ACTION TO ENFORCE LIABILITY
12-2.3 - Effect of application to surrogate to sell real property
12-2.3 Effect of application to surrogate to sell real property
If, during the pendency of an action to enforce a liability created by this article against a distributee or devisee of real property, a proceeding is pending or is subsequently commenced for the judicial settlement of the account of the personal representative, the action insofar as it affects any real property of the decedent shall be stayed until the accounting proceeding is concluded without an application for an order, under SCPA article 19, to dispose of real property of the decedent for the payment of debts, funeral or administration expenses having been made or, if made, without such an order having been granted. If such an order is granted, the action shall be dismissed as to the real property ordered to be disposed of and the plaintiff remitted to the enforcement of his rights against the proceeds of the real property held by the personal representative. Nothing contained herein precludes a person from asserting any right he may have under this article with respect to any other property of the decedent.
