I need more information about Codicils

Once a Will is signed and witnessed, there are only two ways in which it can be altered:

1. To make a new Will which will automatically revoke the previous Will.

2. To make a “Codicil” – this is a document which is executed in the same way as a Will but and effectively writes the amendments into the existing Will, with the other terms remaining valid.

We advise making a Codicil where you want to make a simple amendment to your Will, perhaps a change of executor, or maybe to add a new grandchild.

If the proposed changes are more extensive, or you wish to make changes on a regular basis to your Will,  it is advisable to make a new Will.

We try to offer a “fixed fee” for our work wherever possible.  Once we have taken details of the changes you would like to make we will inform you of our expected fees for your Codicil.
