What on earth is a Codicil?
A codicil is a document that amends, rather than replaces, a previous will. Amendments made by a codicil may add or remove small provisions (e.g. changing executors), or may completely change the majority, or all, of the gifts under the will.
What is the difference between a 'Residuary Gify' and a 'Specific Gift'?
The 'residue' of an estate is everything that is left in your estate after all debts, bills and taxes have been paid and all specific and non-specific gifts have been distributed. Leaving the residue of an estate to a named beneficiary is called a 'residuary gift'. Residuary gifts are a common way to ensure that all remaining property passes to your chosen beneficiaries, rather than falling under the intestacy rules.
A specific gift is a particular item or sum of money that you wish to give someone in your Will, for example, a house, a piece of jewellery, £10,000.
