Re: Existing UK account for Non-residents

Same experience as Ace1, kept accounts when left the UK, including savings accounts, plus opened another one (had to give a UK address for initial contact and used in-laws; then wrote and changed it to home address in Switzerland). Have since changed countries as we moved to France and have had no problems retaining both all swiss and english accounts.
Never had any problems with topping them up either, have regular standing orders to two of them.

Main problem seems to be not being able to change my UK credit card to a newer lower rate one but being made to keep the original one (@27.1%, eek) so don't use it unless I really have to!
