Tangible Personal Property Memo
UPC § 2-513 now allows a testator to dispose of tangible personal property by a separate writing by a separate writing, even if prepared after the execution of the will.
Only tangible personal property not otherwise disposed of by the will can be disposed of by such a memo.
- However, one can include a clause in the will saying the memo takes precedence, thereby making the will's disposition conditional upon the memo not disposing of it, and permitting the memo's disposition.
