No gift of royalties are made so far in my will. The mirror wills for my husband and I were made a number of years ago before I became a published author. Yes, as my husband and I are both in our mid 70s, so I would want to leave them to my daughter, should I outlive my husband. Can I do this as a codicil? Our wills are at present with a solicitor for safe keeping, btw.
I take your point about it being simpler and cheaper to ask the solicitor to add an extra clause than draft a new codicil. However, I don't have access to the solicitor any more who drew up the wills for me and my husband. As I said earlier, they are at present as far as I know just filed with a local solicitors for safe keeping. Would this mean a clause cannot be added and I would have to draft a new codicil? Can this be done, btw, using the Free Wills arrangement for charity. This was how we drew up our original mirror wills about 15 years ago?
Thanks, ***** ***** I realised once I'd asked the question, that what you suggest regarding preparing a new will next time a promotion is on, probably might be my best option. I appreciate the advice you've given me and I don't think there really isn't anything further to ask. Thanks again.
