    DIY Downloadable Codicil Templates 29th Nov 17 at 12:20 PM
    Hi,
    I need to change the Executors of my Will.
    There's plenty of DIY offerings on the Web offering suitable Codicil templates, including instructions, for about 10-15, which would seem simpler (& cheaper!) than using a Solicitor for such a minor change.
    Does anyone have any experience of these or recommend a particular company/site?
    Thanks

    How long is it since you made your will? Wills need to be reviewed and updated every five years or so. In any case codicils, although legal are seldom used these days. They can esaily be "lost" or damaged. The technology these days makes it easy to print out a new will.

    My Dad's solicitor did his codicil for a very small charge. I think it was about 50.
    Worth getting a professional to do it, pay a little bit extra, and have peace of mind that it's been done correctly.
