Apologies for offending your house price sensibilities.

@ cynicalsoothsayer,
Its a practice for when they go bankrupt from lending too much cash to house buyers without checking that purchasers have the ability to repay.

Joking apart I needed money quickly today to pay for the kids party and couldn't access any! This comes on the back of the Halifax freezing my account due to a savings account maturing and it was a week until they believed the money was legit ! Thank god I kept my house sale letters.

I did wonder why my Halifax bankcard wouldn't give me any money from anywhere. I did wonder whether they had run out of money!
