Codicil Solicitor Hemel Hempstead

Altering your Will

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.
