Codicil revoking or changing choice of executor

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 need to cancel your choice of executor, or to replace an executor you chose with someone else. You might do this if one of your executors is no longer able to act as your executor, or if you decide to change your executor. 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 existing will, as at this point we recommend that you make a new will.
