I have already executed my will but now want to make some changes in it. Is it safe to execute a new will or will a codicil suffice?
— XYZ A codicil only amends a previously executed will. Hence, the intention of the testator has to be carried out in terms of the will read with the codicil. The codicil will not supersede the entire will. If you wish to make only a few changes in your will, it is simpler to execute a codicil instead of re-writing the entire will. Your codicil must clearly set out the changes in the manner of inheritance. If you wish to make many or significant changes with respect to your heirs and the manner of inheritance, you may execute a new will instead. Once executed, the new will will be considered as your final will and will supersede your previous will/s. I have entered into an Agreement to Sell for purchasing a flat in Noida.
