Changing a Will

You can only make a Will according to your circumstances at the time the Will is made.  Inevitably, however, your life and financial and personal position will change as time goes by.  This obviously means that your Will may become out of date and therefore need changing.

The good news is that a Will can be changed very simply and quickly.  In many cases if the change in your Will is relatively minor then the change can be effected by a short document called a ‘Codicil’ which is signed and witnessed in the same way as the Will and then kept with the original Will.  If, however, the changes are more significant it may be better to make a new Will to save any possible confusion.  If a new Will is signed, all earlier Wills are automatically invalidated and should be destroyed.
