Until 19821, the court's power to rectify a will was limited2, but since 1982 the law has been liberalised and a will may now be rectified if the court is satisfied that it is so expressed as to fail to carry out the testator's intentions, in consequence of a clerical error or a failure to understand his instructions3. Rectification of a will is dealt with elsewhere in this work4.
