It is advisable to get out your Last Will and Testament to check it occasionally because:
- An existing will may contain a legacy that has been distorted by inflation
- Your circumstances may have changed since you wrote the last will – this includes getting married or divorced where a will can become partially invalidated
- An existing will may contain a gift to someone who has died
- Some people may be left out – for instance a new grandchild or a new close friend
- An existing will may refer to an executor who may have died, or who may no longer wish to act for you. (Nominating a firm of solicitors as joint executors is a safe-guard.)
Note: An existing will can be updated using a codicil, or by re-making your will. It is usually better to re-make your Last Will and Testament.)
