What is a codicil?

It is recommended that you review your will regularly to ensure it is still accurate to your current circumstances. As your life moves on and things change your will may become outdated and it is crucial as it depicts what happens in the event of your death.

Ensuring your will is correct is important to look after your loved ones how you see fit. If it needs to be updated, this is where a codicil will help.

A codicil is a legal document which requires signing and witnessing like a will and is a way of making amendments to your original will as opposed to writing a new one.

Codicils are used as it is an easier cheaper option for changing your will and there is no limit to how many codicils that you can add.

 

Wills and codicils cons

It is crucial that your codicil is kept with your will or your original will could be open to questions being raised.

The other potential issue is that you can have an unlimited amount of codicils but the more you have adds to the complexity of arranging your wishes.
