Is there a time limit on distributing an estate?

Although there is no official time limit on distributing an estate, most executors are expected to complete the administration within a year of the death. This is often referred to as an executor’s year although it may likely take longer if there are any issues with inheritance tax or selling the deceased person’s property.
