Any borrower borrowed personal loan is liable to repay them on their own.

The loan cannot be transferred to the legal heirs unless the legal heirs have not inherited any assets from the deceased borrower.

In  that case, the liability in the legal heirs would be restricted to the extent of the value of the property inherited.

Son is not liable to repay the loan amount borrowed by his father during his lifetime unless guarantee was given by him.

Whether there is a guarentor of the loan or not ? If so, s/he shall be liable for outstanding loan amount.

Besdies this who has inherited / acquired estate of deceased father as the successor shall be made liable for repayment of debt left behind by borrower from his estate ?

If the borrower is alive then he himself is liable for repayment of his loans .
