I want to adjust my will. I just want to remove a line. Can I reprint a page with line removed? Will it be legal, as obviously paper will be different?

    Good afternoon

    You can amend your will, however this will need to be done by way of a codicil.  If you want to have it as a new will, then you must ensure all requirements of having a valid will, for example how it is witnesses, are met.

    Dear Sirs 


    Thank you for your enquiry. A Will cannot be changed, just by deleting a line in your current Will.


    You will need to follow the right guidance on this. Wills are only valid if they are executed in the correct manner.


    You should have your present Will reviewed, and if you require a new Will this should be prepared and executed correctly in order to be valid.


    Should you wish to seek our advice and assistance in this matter, kindly contact us at Shawstone Associates for an appointment on 0208 538 0114 where one of our specialist will be happy help you.
