how can we check if an executor properly executed a will?

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

Customer: replied 1 year 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

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 1 year ago.
is there a form or name for this action?

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