                     Revocation (1)

Revocation of a will can be effected by another will or codicil, or by any writing, provided that document expressly states that all previous testamentary documents are revoked, and is executed in the same way that a will must be executed. It is insufficient for the purposes of revocation of an earlier will for a later will to state that ‘This is the last will and testament of …’ unless the later will expressly revokes the earlier will. Consideration must be given to a later testamentary document, which although not expressly revoking an earlier one, effectively revokes it by disposing of all the estate. If the two documents are inconsistent the latter revokes the earlier, but if the documents when read together appear to form the testator’s wishes both may be proved either fully or in part; where there is doubt the directions of a District Judge or Registrar should be sought.

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