A will by its very nature can be revoked. There are four methods of revocation:
- marriage or civil partnership, except a will made in the exercise of a power of appointment;
- burning, tearing or otherwise destroying of a will or codicil by the testator with the intention of revoking it;
- drafting of another will or codicil executed in the manner required by law; and
- duly executed writing by the testator declaring an intention to revoke.
- No will, when revoked, will be revived otherwise than by re-execution or codicil.
