Is it time to review your will?

Once you have made a Will you should consider reviewing this every few years, especially if there have been changes in your life, such as:

  • Separation
  • Marriage
  • Divorce
  • A Baby
  • Moving House

Once your Will has been signed and witnessed you cannot amend this unless you make an official alteration by way of a Codicil. A Codicil should only be used where there are minor amendments required to your Will. A Codicil must be signed and witnessed in the same way a Will is signed and witnessed.

Where there are major changes required to your Will, such as changes to Executors, beneficiaries, distribution of your estate etc a new Will will be necessary. Upon making of a new Will this will revoke (cancel) all previous Wills and Codicils you have made.
