(1) Subject to Part X,
a will or any part of a will that has been revoked is revived only by the
re-execution of that will or by execution of a later will, including a
document that is a will by operation of Part X, showing an intention to revive
that will or part.
(2) When a will that
has been partly revoked and afterwards wholly revoked is revived, the revival
does not, unless the contrary intention appears by the will, extend to the
part that was revoked before the revocation of the whole.
(3) A will that has
been revoked and later revived, either wholly or partly, is taken to have been
executed on the day on which the will is revived.
