What is a deed of variation?

A deed of variation is a document which varies the terms of the deceased’s will. This is ordinarily a direction by a beneficiary to the executors to transfer all or some of the property to a particular person or persons (the recipient). The recipient does not have to have been a beneficiary under the original will. You can enter into a deed of variation under any circumstances, provided it is done within 1 year of the testator’s death.
