If your inheritance rights stem from a Last Will or Estate Probate (even if NO will) there will have been some kind of probate procedure in Probate Court.
And anybody can freely go to that Probate Clerk’s office and look at that probate file.
So go to the Clerk of that Probate Court and there look up and read the probate file, to see exactly what has & hasn’t happened on your releative’s probate case.
You’ll then know what’s been done, and can check the status of the property sale. And all the other business of that probate.
If you have an attorney he/she can easily & quickly, probably with a phone call to the other lawyer, find the exact status of the probate for you.
