Good evening all,



My Father held three accounts at Nationwide. After his recent death, I visited the local branch to notify them and to take a death certificate by way of notification.



I have to apply for probate, but in the months this may take, Nationwide quite appropriately freeze the accounts. When I asked what happened to the interest on the frozen accounts, the Nationwide person said they retain the interest; as the accounts are now frozen, they do not accrue interest any longer.



I have 2 questions for anyone able to help:



1. Is this correct?

2. Why is it correct (if so). Surely the interest gained whilst I go through the probate process should be added to the account, not be used to swell the Nationwide coffers.



Appreciate any advice.

This has to be complete rubbish. It amounts to theft from the estate. Get them to put that in writing - if they dare.

Confirm their comment in writing and ask them to confirm that it is true.

Thanks for the reply.

I thought it had to be nonsense and told the person on the enquiry desk that if that was their official stance I would be contacting everyone I can think of.



Looked ludicrous but just thought I'd ask.
