Do you mean was the will signed properly by the deceased?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
no. re how the executor manages, files and checks for legal rights and so on. There are some beneficiaries who have still not received word or any of the items left in the will from 4 years ago
Expert:  JGM replied 12 months ago.

If there is still outstanding work after that length of time the beneficiaries can go to court to ask the court to make the executor to produce an accounting and to make payment or delivery of the estate to the beneficiaries.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
is there a form or name for this action?
Expert:  JGM replied 12 months ago.

No form. Count, Reckoning and Payment. Raised as an Ordinary action under Ordinary procedure so no forms used in the drafting.
