Codicil revoking a gift to a named beneficiary (WL007)

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. This particular codicil will cancel a gift which you have left to a beneficiary in your Will. In all other aspects, your Will remains the same. In order to use this codicil, make sure that when read together with the codicil your Will makes a gift of your residuary estate (the remainder of your estate after everything else in your Will has been given away), otherwise what is called a partial intestacy may occur. Partial intestacy is where some, but not all, of a deceased's assets are given away. You cannot use this document if you already have five or more codicils to your existing Will (in which case, you should draft a new Will).
