As executor of my late mother's will, part of her estate was still in my late father's name and my solicitor took out a 'de bonis non' on our behalf. We were told it could take about 22 weeks. However, we are still waiting after almost three years. I phone the solicitor from time to time and he just says we are slowly making our way up the queue! Does anyone know the length of time these things usually take. Mum died in 2013 and I still have part of her estate to administer!
