Amend your existing will
As individual circumstances change from time to time, we always advise that wills are regularly reviewed to ensure they still reflect your wishes.
Simple amendments can be easily made to an existing will.
How do I amend an existing will?
A codicil can easily be added. This is like an appendix, which needs to be signed, witnessesed and kept with the original will.
By following our simple instructions, using PDSA’s legacy information guide and the sample codicil included in the pack you can easily amend your existing will.
Download the sample form and follow the simple instructions.
A codicil can be used to make specific changes to an existing will, like replacing an executor or adding a new gift, while leaving the remaining instructions untouched.
If you want to make a number of changes to your will, you may need to consider writing a new one. You may find our free will information guide, about gifts in wills useful.
If you need any further assistance please phone our legacy helpline free on 0800 591248.
