Title 14 : Decedents Estates and Fiduciary Relations

Chapter 066 : Settlement of Claims

(Cite as: 14 V.S.A. § 1202)
  • § 1202. Statutes of limitations

    Unless an estate is insolvent, the executor or administrator, with the consent of all heirs, devisees, and legatees, may waive any defense of limitations available to the estate. If the defense is not waived, no claim which was barred by any statute of limitations at the time of the decedent’s death shall be allowed or paid. The running of any statute of limitations measured from some event other than death and advertisement for claims against a decedent is suspended during the four months following the first publication of notice under section 1201 of this title but resumes thereafter as to claims not barred pursuant to the sections which follow. For purposes of any statute of limitations, the proper presentation of a claim under section 1204 of this title is equivalent to commencement of a proceeding on the claim. (Added 1975, No. 240 (Adj. Sess.), § 7.)
