• The will must be probated (accepted as legally valid) and then the heirs and legatees notified of the reading. The time it takes will depend on how soon the executor or trustees is/are able to accomplish those things, which involve some time and red tape. Usually only a week or two, sometimes a few weeks. If the estate is complicated it sometimes takes a couple of months. All this is assuming of course that there is a will.
  • You can read the will any time you can get your hands on it. No one has to "pass" in order for you to do this.
