Inheritance

When should I expect to receive my inheritance?

This depends on the complexity of the estate and the jurisdiction. Complex estates may take years to settle, though executors may do one or more partial (‘interim’) distributions along the way. They have to be very careful not to distribute too much, too early, as they could end up having to pay taxes or debts personally. They have a lot of risk and as a result, total discretion of when to distribute funds.

In Ontario, executors (called ‘estate trustees’ in that province) are now under audit authority for four years from their date of appointment, which may be a factor in how and when they make distributions.
