Civil Code Article 1171Jan. 20, 2021

If after the partition of the deceased's property, the creditors have consented to the assignment of the deceased's repayment liability to one heir or to its division among the heirs, each heir is thus released from their joint liability.
The heirs are released from their joint liability at the expiration of five years from the time of the partition of the inheritance, or, if the date of performance comes after the partition, from that date.
