Codicil with New Bequests on Death of a Legatee
This is a codicil to the last will made and published by me, AB of, etc., on the ……… day of …… 2000.
Whereas CD, one of the residuary legatees named in my said will having died since the date thereof (exact date to be given, if known), the legacy thereunder bequeathed unto and in his favour shall after my death fail and form a part of my general estate which was never intended by me. And whereas in the circumstances aforesaid it is my wish and desire that the said legacy shall go to his brother EF. Now by this codicil I do hereby give leave and bequeath the same unto and in favour of his brother, EF. Provided, however, and in case the said EF shall also predecease me, (which May God Forbid) then and in such an event the same shall pass unto and vest in GH and LJ, the two sons of the said EF, in equal shares absolutely and forever. And in all other respects I confirm my said will.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set and subscribed my hand and signature this ………… day of ……… 2000.
Signed by the within-named Testator as his last Will and Testament at the same time. Thereafter at the request of Testator and in his presence and in the presence of one another we subscribe our respective names
