A codicil is a simple way to change a will. Once completed the codicil needs to be kept with the original will.

- General Codicil – a general all-purpose codicil for use when you need to make other changes to your Will; or
- Codicil to leave a gift to a charity – a codicil specifically for that purpose.
Using our Codicil to Change Executor Template
The template should only be used for changing executors of a will before death.
The Word template download of our Codicil to Change Executor comes with full guidance notes. It is like filling in a form and takes most people less than ten minutes to read and complete. It really is that simple.
We get a lot of people say to us ‘I want to change the executor of my will’. This template does just that.
The template can be used for any Will that has already been created in the UK (it is suitable for use in Scotland, as well as in England & Wales). Also perfect for adding an executor to a will. It is also great to use to change executor.
Once purchased, you can download the template in Word and then complete it on your computer before you print it.
Once printed, you will need to sign the Codicil in the presence of two other people, who must then add their signatures to the Codicil.
Do not get a person who is a beneficiary under the Will to witness your signing the final document. They must be independent witnesses. The guide that comes with the codicil explains all of this is more detail, so simply follow the guide carefully.
When signed, we would suggest that you:
- keep the original of the codicil with your latest Will; and
- let your loved ones know where you have stored both of them.
