A: If you, as an heir, believe that the executor of the estate is unduly delaying the closing and distribution of the estate, it's crucial to take action to protect your interests. Start by communicating your concerns directly with the executor, emphasizing the urgency of your need for the inheritance. Reviewing the will and estate documents will help you understand the legal framework governing the estate's distribution.
