                Revocation (3)

(i) under section 18 of the Wills Act 1837 , where the will was executed before 1 January 1983, by the testator marrying after he had made his will, except:

– where the will was made in contemplation of his marriage to a particular person and that marriage has in fact taken place; or

(ii) where the will was executed on or after 1 January 1983, section 18 of the Act is amended so as to provide that a will is revoked on the testator’s marriage, save where it appears from the will that at the time of execution the testator expected to be married to a particular person and it was his intention that the will should not be revoked by the marriage. Similarly, where it appears from the will that at the time it was executed the testator expected to be married to a particular person and that any disposition in the will should not be revoked by the marriage to that person such disposition shall take effect notwithstanding the marriage, and any other dispositions in the will will remain effective unless it would appear the testator intended otherwise.

Generally, a will must contain a specific clause or direction that the will should survive the intended marriage so as to avoid any doubt arising.

We charge only £50 for preparing a will, and £600 for probate of an estate under £300k.
