You need the assistance of an attorney who specializes in real estate and probate law. She can arrange to have the title to the land examined. That is the first step in determining the status of the title and what needs to be done to clear it.

If the property is owned by the group as joint tenants with the right of survivorship, upon the death of an owner their interest passes automatically to the surviving owners. If the property is held by the group as tenants in common, upon the death of an owner their estate must be probated and their interest would pass under the terms of their Will or by the laws of intestacy to their heirs at law.

You should address the situation as soon as possible. The longer you wait the more it will cost to clear the title.

The estate of the deceased is...of course that may essentially be simply a reduction of what the children would get.

Only if you want clear title to the property. If you fail to clear the lien, the property can be sold from under you.

When you inherited the property, you inherited the debt.

If so it would pass according to their will or according to the laws of intestacy if there was no will. You can check the laws of your state at the related question link below.
