Q: I have a will created in 2015 in FL. I since sold the residence listed in the will. Do I need a new will to list my new
Home or attach a paper to will with new home address?
A: You either need a new will or a codicil (an amendment). Speak with a local estates lawyer for more specific advice.
Phillip William Gunthert agrees with this answer
A: If your circumstances have drastically changes you may need to create new estate planning documents, if it is one or two changes you can likely address it via a Codicil being added to your Will. If you are trying to avoid probate entirely, I would advise speaking with an estate planning attorney, which you will need to do anyway for the Will Codicil changes you have referenced.
