How Long Do Creditors Have to Bill an Estate in Maryland?

In Maryland, the creditors have six (6) months to file a claim. The bill must be sent to the Personal Representative and filed with the Register of Wills. If you are a Personal Representative of an estate and waiting for a bill from the hospital or other creditor, it might be a good idea to check the estate’s docket to make sure no claim has been filed. There may be exceptions to this, but if the creditor misses the 6-month deadline, they may no longer be able to recover from the estate. To discuss the potential exceptions and to protect yourself from missing any creditors, you should seek the advice of an estate administration attorney.
