WILLS ACT 1970 - SECT 16

16 .         How revoked will revived

        (1)         Subject to Part X, a will or any part of a will that has been revoked is revived only by the re-execution of that will or by execution of a later will, including a document that is a will by operation of Part X, showing an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revoked is revived, the revival does not, unless the contrary intention appears by the will, extend to the part that was revoked before the revocation of the whole.

        (3)         A will that has been revoked and later revived, either wholly or partly, is taken to have been executed on the day on which the will is revived.

        [Section 16 amended: No. 69 of 1987 s. 8; No. 27 of 2007 s. 15.]
