Codicil revoking appointment of executor and appointing substitute (WL011)

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 you need to revoke the appointment of an executor in your Will and replace him/her with a substitute, you can use this codicil to do so. You might do this if one of your executors is unable to act as your executor or if you decide to change your executor. In all other respects, your Will remains the same. 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 you cannot use this codicil if you already have five or more codicils to your existing Will, at which point we recommend that you draft a new Will.
