WY Stat § 2-7-506 (2016) What's This?

2-7-506. Homestead to be set apart by court; payment of liens or encumbrances.

If the homestead held prior to the death of the decedent is returned in the appraisement at a value not exceeding the value of the homestead exemption provided in W.S. 2-7-508, the court shall order it set off to the persons entitled thereto. If there are liens or encumbrances on the homestead and if the funds of the estate are adequate to pay all claims against the estate, all claims against the estate and any liens or encumbrances on the homestead, whether filed or presented or not, if known or made known to the personal representative, shall be paid out of the funds. If the funds of the estate are not sufficient for that purpose, liens or encumbrances shall be paid proportionately with other claims allowed, and the liens or encumbrances on the homestead shall only be enforced against the homestead for any deficiency remaining after the payment.
