BANQUE SANTANDER

  • As a UK resident and also a property owner in LG now for just over 2 years, I have never experienced any problems with the Santander bank with regards to moving money from UK to LG, until now.  The bank is not receiving my money and nobody knows why!.  UK HSBC say its Santander and Santander say its UK end.  Has anything changed in terms of Spanish Laws or Residency which may stop the movement of money, from the UK, or has the 'credit crunch' developed a black hole!!!
    Having said that my Dec transfer did go back to the HSBC in UK, as Santander would not accept it, so I haven't lost it, but I am coming over in a couple of weeks and would like some money in my account over there.    Has anyone else experienced problems like this or does anyone know what may cause this.

  • You may find the problem is to do with a form declaring you are non resident.I arrived in december and my account was frozen they said the forms were sent in june to uk. I then filled them in again and was advised it would be unfrozen in a week,came out last week still frozen .

  • It does appear with the rejected payment that your account is frozen.

    Santander are the only ones who can advise you of this.

  • You are right, our account has been frozen for inbound transfers of money because of the Residencia forms. We heard from Santander and they have sent new forms to us, but from what you say, it seems it may take longer than they have told us, and as we are out again at the end of Jan, we won't rely on getting it sorted by then.  Apparently, they need to be signed every 2 years, which we were not aware of.
