The need for updating a will often arises due to a change in personal circumstances e.g. marriage, divorce or children. As such the extent of the changes requested will dictate the method to adopt.

Making a new Will

If you have a major change to your personal circumstances then you should make a new will.

All wills begin with the wording, "I revoke all previous wills and testamentary dispositions."  This means that when writing your new will, all previous versions become null and void. As such, it is advisable to destroy the old will to avoid any confusion at a later date.

Review your Will Regularly

You should review your will regularly, we recommend at least every 3-5 years to ensure that it reflects your wishes in accordance with changing financial and personal circumstances.

In addition, we recommend a regular review with a solicitor to ensure that your will accords with current legislation.
