If some one files for bankuptcy and they have equity in their home then an amount equal to the equity must be paid to the trustee (for the benefit of their creditors) or the house will be seized and sold. If the person that died hasn’t paid for the equity yet then the trustee will probably have to seize and sell the house…

If this is not a “hypothetical question” then you should contact the trustee handling the file.
