How long does it take to get inheritance money?


The length of time it takes to administer an Estate depends on the complexity of the Estate, which in turn affects how long it takes to receive an inheritance. An Executor is required by regulation to submit a Liquidation and Distribution Account (L&D) to the Master of the High Court within six (6) months of the date of the Letter of Executorship. However, the total time to administer an Estate varies.

At Capital Legacy, our business rule is to aim to administer an Estate within nine (9) months.
