easier for her if I named my bank as executors. But having discovered how much they charge for this service, I wondered if I could simply cross out their name on the will. Or should I have the whole thing written again?
Any alteration to a will should only be made at the time of signing it, when the alteration would be initialled by the person making the will together with the witnesses. Any other alteration required later can be done by a codicil: a supplemental document to your will, which also needs to be signed and witnessed correctly for it to be valid. Alternatively, it may be just as easy for you to make a completely new will. Either way you should appoint a new executor. LIKE many streets in Manchester we have problems with car parking. One family puts traffic cones outside their house to reserve ‘their’ space, which led to a row when I was lifting a TV set into the house and moved the cones. Can we do anything to stop this harassment?
You could always call the police. Although they don’t relish being drawn into this sort of dispute they might just set your neighbour straight about his anti-social behaviour. Placing cones in the road is technically an obstruction of the highway and an offence. No-one has any right to park in any particular place on a public road, whether outside his house or not.
