It is generally recommended to review and update your Will periodically to ensure it reflects your current wishes and circumstances. Certain life events or changes in your situation may necessitate revisiting and updating your Will. Here are some common triggers that may prompt a review of your Will:

1. Significant Life Events

Marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of children, or the death of a beneficiary or executor are events that may require updates to your will.

2. Changes in Relationships

If your relationships with beneficiaries or executors have evolved or if you want to add or remove someone from your will, it may be appropriate to make revisions.

3. Changes in Assets

If you acquire or dispose of significant assets, such as properties, businesses, or investments, you may want to ensure your will accurately reflects these changes.

Koha allows you to amend your Will with unlimited changes at any time up to 6 months from the day payment was made with no extra charge.
