Codicil making a gift to a new beneficiary

If you want to make a relatively simple and straightforward change to your will, you can use a codicil to do so without having to create a new will.

Use this codicil if you want to make another gift of money or a specific item to a new beneficiary, i.e. one that is not already named in your will. In all other respects, your will remains the same.

Please note that you cannot use this codicil if you already have 5 or more codicils to your will, as at this point we recommend that you make a new will. Note also that this codicil may not be suitable if your intended gift is a property (e.g. a house or flat).
