Making changes to a will by means of a codicil
To avoid the expense of having a new Will drawn up, minor alterations can be made to an existing will by means of a codicil. A codicil is an amending document that changes or deletes an existing provision, or adds an entirely new one. Codicils are signed and witnessed in the same way wills are, and are kept with the will. If your changes are major, then you should seek professional advice to determine whether you should have a new will drawn up.

All other terms in my will remain the same.
