Am I liable as an Executor for a late bill.

I wonder if anyone can advise me on a problem that is worrying me. I was the executor of my late mother-in-law's estate. I optained probate in June this year and distributed the proceeds in line with the will (I did not use a solicitor). I have now received a bill from the local council for several thousand pounds which is an underpayment of her domiciliary care. While I was filling in the probate forms they told me that all that was owed was a few hundred pounds. I used this figure as a debt to the estate on the probate forms. They are now saying that they have realised that they had been undercharging her for several years and this money is owed to them. Am I liable for this bill?
