Uk Banks0 Replies
Hi, Has anyone found a solution to the UK residency requirement for opening a bank/building society account in the UK?I'm a British citizen and used to have a Barclay's account until they told me I that, as a non-UK resident I needed to move my account to Jersey (their "international branch"). To cut a long story short, the Jersey service was poor and the last straw came with the announcement that, to "enhance their service", they would be charging £40 if the balance dipped below £2000!! I closed the account, as my main account is in France anyway. But with children in the UK etc. it would be SO useful to have an account over there, even with a building society, etc.Any suggestions would be very welcome!
