Codicil revoking gift to one and giving to another (WL013)

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 wish to revoke a specific gift (e.g. a car, furniture) or pecuniary gift (i.e. money) given in your Will and give that same gift (or a different gift) to someone else, you can use this codicil to do so. This codicil will not change anything else in your Will. If, in this codicil, you choose to replace the original gift with a different gift, then the original gift will not be left to anyone. In this case make sure that your Will (as amended by this and any other codicil) makes a gift of your residuary estate, i.e. 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.Please note that this codicil is not appropriate for use if your current Will has more than five codicils to it.
