Once you’ve made a will, it’s really important to keep it up-to-date. If you don’t, it might not reflect your wishes after you’re gone. This could cause problems for those you leave behind at an already difficult time.
Whenever your circumstances change, e.g. if you get married, or if your partner dies, you should update your will. You can do this using a codicil form.
Your solicitor can help you add this form to your will. Alternatively, if your will has been made by our partners The Goodwill Partnership, they can amend it for you for a small administration fee.
Don’t make changes to your will yourself as you could render it invalid if not done correctly.
