Codicil appointing substitute executor on death of executor (WL012)

If you would like to make some relatively simple and straightforward amendments or alterations to your Will, but you do not wish to create a new Will, you should use a codicil to do so. If an executor named in your Will dies, you can use this codicil to appoint another person to act in their place as an executor. In all other respects, your Will remains unchanged. It is important that your new executor be given the same type of appointment as the executor they are replacing. In your Will, that executor would have been appointed either solely as an executor or as an executor and trustee. Please note that this Will cannot be used if you already have five or more codicils to your Will, in which case we recommend that you draft a new Will instead.
