Document Overview

A codicil has to meet the formal requirements. To be legally valid the codicil document must be signed and executed in front of witnesses in the same way as for a will. Once completed the codicil is kept with that will.

It is recommended that the codicil can only be used when the change is minor and straightforward. A written record can help protect the parties to a will if any questions or legal issues arise regarding the amendments to the will.
