SECTION 33-9-16


§ 33-9-16 Effect of borrowing by executor or administrator.

Any borrowing authorized as provided in § 33-9-14 shall create a debt of the estate, and any mortgage, pledge, or lien authorized as provided in § 33-9-14 shall be, to the extent and in the manner authorized, binding upon the property so mortgaged; provided, however that nothing contained in §§ 33-9-14 – 33-9-17 shall be held to affect the right of the executor or administrator subsequently to contest the validity of any claim against the estate for the payment of which the borrowing was authorized. And no transaction, and no note, bond, covenant, or other obligation executed or entered into as a part of or as an incident to the transaction shall bind the executor or administrator personally, insofar as the transaction, note, bond, covenant, or other obligation is made or entered into by the executor or administrator in his or her representative capacity.
