Amend my Will
To amend a Will that you’ve already got, you may not need to re-write it completely.
You can ask a solicitor or a STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) qualified Will-writer to add an amendment which is called a codicil. Generally, if you only want to make a small or simple change, then you can use a codicil. However, if the change is a bit more significant or tricky, then you should make a new Will.
You can find the codicil form in our Will guide booklet.
We've got some great resources to help provide you with information and advice when writing your Will, including:
- Our Will guide booklet
- Suggested wording to include in your Will
- Guidance on adding a gift to your Will via a codicil if you’ve already written a Will
We also strongly recommend that you consult a solicitor or a STEP qualified Will-writer when you make your Will, to ensure it is accurate and reflects your wishes.
With our free Will-writing service, we can put you in touch a a solicitor in your local area, by requesting a free Will-writing pack.
Already left a Gift to RBL?
We are thankful for every gift that’s left to RBL. If you have left a gift through your own solicitor, we won’t have been made aware of the gift - but you can let us know by completing our form or using the contact details above.
By letting us know, we can thank you and welcome you to our community of Legacy pledgers. You’ll also join our stewardship programme with access to exclusive events, newsletters and communications. We will never ask what you've chosen to leave to RBL, as this is confidential to you.
Write your Will with a local solicitor
We can put you in touch with a trusted solicitor in your area through the National Free Wills Network. Then just arrange an appointment to draw up your Will for free at a time that suits you.
