My g-mother's will stipulated that her house & land be sold & the money from the sale be divided between my mother, my uncle & my cousin. My mother is the Executrix & she has taken care of all the necessary paperwork, notice to creditors, taxes, etc., & the estate account was set up at the bank quite some time ago. She would like to go ahead & distribute the assets in the account, but has been told that she can not do so until the house & land are sold. I think she may be able to distribute some of the funds, but just how much, I do not know. What if the land & house never sell? Does the account just sit in the bank & she can't ever distribute the assets? Is there any way of transferring the land & house from the estate to the beneficiaries, so it can be removed from probate?
