If you have made a Will, you are free to change your Will at any time. You cannot however simply make an alteration by, for example, crossing something out in the original Will and writing in your new wishes.
If the alterations are fairly minor, you can prepare a codicil which is a separate document in which you change a provision in your Will. It is usually recommended however that you make an entirely new Will unless the change is very simple. A codicil must be signed in the presence of two witnesses, in the same way as the original Will.
We suggest that you read our article titled Reasons to Reconsider Making a New Will.
It is recommended that you consult a solicitor if you want to change or revoke your Will because even the simplest changes must be correctly done or they may have disastrous results.
