§ 64.2-532

Real estate of decedent as assets for payment of debts

If a decedent’s personal estate is insufficient to satisfy the decedent’s debts and lawful demands against his estate, all real estate of the decedent, including such real estate that remains after satisfying the debts with which the real estate was charged or was subject to under the decedent’s will, are assets for the payment of the decedent’s debts and all lawful demands against his estate. A decedent’s real estate shall be applied to his debts and lawful demands against his estate in the same order that the personal estate of a decedent is applied pursuant to § 64.2-528.
