Nobody wants to leave loved ones with a mass of debt. Of course it is normal and sometimes prudent to acquire manageable debt. Mortgages, college expenses, and in some cases auto loans are acceptable debts, especially in a family’s early and mid years.
Many businesses use debt and in some cases it is long term. Buildings and equipment are many times owned by the owner and rented to the company. Of course the debt or mortgage needs to be protected in case of a death by the owner.
This is also true for those who buy income property homes. If you are handy and can do the upkeep, your heirs may not be.
