Hello, I have now officially moved abroad and no longer resident for tax purposes. I have left a correspondence address in the UK at a friend's because the customer service officer at the branch told me they couldn't keep my account alive if I had a foreign address. My friend, for his own reasons, is not very happy with receiving mail for me and is a bit paranoid about possible consequences for him.


You will be probably aware that Halifax gives often incorrect advise both in person and by telephone, so I wonder if anybody has a clue on how to move from here.


I will probably receive a couple of letters a year and in 3 years I will receive new ATM and credit cards, so this could be a problem. I would like to keep this account alive as I still do online shopping from the UK.


Any help will be appreciated.

All you need to do is ask as a general enquiry. You dont need to say you are an account holder.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

No, with Halifax you can't. If you call Customer Service you need to input your account number. They don't give pre sales information.


EDIT: However I've found this:



I'll give them a call, but it looks like Lloyds would only accept international banking for deposits of over £25k a year.
