Article 1130. Cancellation and modification of a will.

1. The testator has the right to cancel or change the will made by him at any time after its making, without specifying the reasons for its cancellation or change. To revoke or change a will, no one’s consent is required, including those appointed by the heirs in the testament to be canceled or changed. 2. The testator may, by means of a new will, cancel the previous will as a whole or change it by canceling or changing certain testamentary orders contained in it. A subsequent will, which does not contain direct instructions to revoke a previous will or individual testamentary orders contained in it, cancels this previous will in whole or in part, in which it contradicts the subsequent will. A will, canceled in whole or in part by a subsequent will, shall not be restored if the subsequent will is canceled by the testator in full or in a relevant part. 3. In case of invalidity of the subsequent will, the inheritance is carried out in accordance with the previous will. 4. A will may also be revoked through an order to revoke it. An order to revoke a will must be made in the form prescribed by this Code for making a will. The rules on clause 3 of this article shall be applied accordingly to the order on cancellation of the will. 5. A will made in extraordinary circumstances (Article 1129) can be canceled or changed only by the same will. 6. A testamentary disposition in a bank (Article 1128) can be canceled or changed only by testamentary disposition of cash rights in the relevant bank.
