Q: What is the difference between to assume his debt and to take over his debt ?
A: They both mean that the person takes the responsibility of someone else’s debt. A lot of people would use them interchangeably but there is a slight distinction:

Assume would be used more under the circumstances of having to take the responsibility of someone else’s debt when they may not necessarily want to take it on, like when they are required to by law.

“You will assume his debt after he dies since that is the law.”



Take over is used more when the person freely chooses to take over someone else’s debts.

“I will take over his debt for him since he can’t pay it”.
Q: What is the difference between debt and liability, obligation ?
A: Liability means you are legally responsible for something.
Therefore if something goes wrong, you are responsible for fixing it or if someone who you are liable for does something illegal, you could also get in trouble. Sometimes, liability is used if a company needs to pay money back (therefore it is the same as debt)
Debt means you owe something, usually money. But sometimes if people say “I’m indebted to you,” it means I owe you a favor.
Obligation means that something is your duty. It can be legal but it can also be a moral thing.
For example, a police officer has a legal obligation to get a search warrant before they can enter your house without your permission.
Someone might also say “I feel obligated to tell you that the company is planning to fire you.” This isn’t because of law, but because they feel morally like they must give the person a fair chance to find a new job.
Q: What is the difference between debt and bad debt ?
A: "Debt" is the money you owe.
"Bad debt" is the money you owe, and it's due or past due, but you haven't paid it or can't pay it.
