Yes, the house will probably have to be sold to pay off the

credit card debt if there are no other assets. The alternative

might be for those that live there and are to inherit to take out a

mortgage and buy the house from the estate for the amount of the

credit card debt and pay off the credit card bills. This would

eliminate the credit card companies placing a lien on the house and

allow them to get clear title.
