Who is responsible for the bills to an inherited house that you have moved into?

Question Details: My aunt died 8 months ago and I and everyone else agreed that I would take the house. About 2 months ago, my other aunt told me that I could move in. I did and I tried switching all the bills such as electric and heat into my name but she would not let me. The house was released to me n the 25th. I also want to collect the money that was left for me. The executor charged me the bills for the last 3 months and she also made me pay the taxes that came out on the 1st for the house. From my understanding, because the house was still in her name I thought she would be responsible for the taxes. I also at the time never entered into an agreement that I would pay the bills while I was there. So can she charge me for the past bills for the last 3 months and and taxes that came out of nothing was in my name yet?
