First of all I’m very sorry to hear of the death of your husband. Normally inheritance tax is due within six months of the death to avoid any penalties. If the authorities haven’t been told of the death for  4 1/2 years or so the surviving spouse may avoid paying inheritance tax. But you really need to clarify what is happening with your lawyer. I know what a confusing time all this is. Best wishes.
