Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience. The Limitations Act 1980 provides for the period after which you would not be able to bring a claim for your inheritance. Claims to receive what was left to you in your deceased father's estate, being under a Will, must be brought within 12 years of the right to the interest arising. This is the case where there is no argument over whether you should be given an interest/entitlement to share in the estate. So if the Will stated that you were to get your share on death and not a much later future date you are risking not being able to claim as your dad passed on 11 years ago, I hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
