Can I make changes to my Will?

It is advisable to review and update your Will periodically, usually every 3-5 years, especially if there are any changes in your personal circumstances such as marriage/divorce or the birth of any children/grandchildren that you’d like to provide for.

If you think your Will needs changing or updating in any way, we strongly advise against making any amendments yourself. Please do not write on, or pin/clip anything to your Will as this can often lead to questions around your intentions and may also not be legally valid. It may also lead someone to believe your Will has been tampered with which could bring about a claim on your estate after you have passed potentially causing a lot of heartache for your family and unnecessary expense.

If you need to make any changes, small additions can be made by way of a codicil however it’s advisable to instead have an entirely new Will written to avoid any uncertainty. We offer update services and will keep in touch during your lifetime to ensure that your document still suits your needs. However, if you’re ever unsure the best thing to do would be to contact us for peace of mind.
