How to update a will

There are two ways to update your wishes. You can either make a codicil or you can make a new will.  Any new will automatically revokes a previous will.

Making a new will and making a codicil will take a similar amount of time.  Codicils are considerably more likely to lead to confusion or dispute - especially if multiple updates have been made.  That's why we offer a new will instead of this. If you require a codicil for any reason we suggest you speak with a traditional solicitor.

You can update your will by just making an online will. If you have a Lifetime Updates account then you can make up to five updates per year at no extra cost.  Otherwise a fresh purchase is required.

It is best practice (and UK Government advice) to check your will every five years or whenever you go through a major life event (marriage, divorce, births bereavements, moving house etc).

Every will is checked by a fully qualified UK solicitor.
