I have still got my bank account in the UK. I still have the house there (don't think it will ever sell!) and have to pay insurance and council tax etc and am presently living off its overdraft. The statements for the credit card (they wont make them paperless for some reason) are sent to my parents house and they recently moved. I rang the bank at (my) midday to change the address but was told this could only be done in UK banking hours and would be most efficiently done by going into my branch. If its most efficiently done by going into my branch, why do they have phone and internet banking? I explained that I was in Australia, but the chap said that I would have to ring back in their banking hours. Like I want to spend all my time and money listening to a series of instructions and product lines before just getting on with the nitty gritty! :realmad: So 24 hour banking actually means banking hours but you can ring them anytime and they get to tell you that in person. How kind!

Hi there everyone,:wubclub: Our house has just gone on the market today, and I am just starting to look at options of what to do with the money when we finally sell it.:frown: Do we have to open an account with a british bank and put it in there until we move and transfer it to an Aussie account then?:skeptical: or, Can we open an Aussie bank account straight away and put all the proceeds in there once the sale is complete? If we can open an account with an Oz bank and do as above, does anyone know of any disadvantages of this? What sort of interest do they pay, what are the charges like?, will we have to transfer it to Oz when we leave the UK?, or can we leave it where it is until it is required?:confused: sorry so many questions, but would appreciate any help Thanks Kim
