Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.

In fact there is no need to change the Will or sign a codicil.

The Will remains valid - a separate note of the addresses changes will help in the event of your death - but nothing else is needed

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
