Can a parents personal items and car be auctioned off to pay debt after death?

Yes and no. Items that are in the deceased persons name can be held in probate. If the car has an outstanding lien, it will just be repossessed if it is not paid off, but if there is a will and the car is left to a person, that person will be responsible for the balance of the loan. If the car is paid off, it can and will be held in probate until the deceased persons estate is cleared of debt. If the person is renting a property and not the owner of the property and has outstanding debt, the items of value can be held in probate and auctioned off. If the will leaves the items to others, it will go to them, but if there is no will, everything listed in the dead persons name will become property of the state until probate is lifted and debt is paid off.
