Frozen bank account?

We recently sold our house in Izmir, leaving some money in our HSBC account. No long after, my RP expired. I have enquired at the bank about transferring the money back to UK, but got the impression that because I had sold up and the RP was no longer valid, transferring the money may be difficult. Can anyone please advise me on this? Thanks in advance.

Re: Frozen bank account?

As far as I know there is no link between RP and bank accounts. You should be able to make the transfer anyway.

I would agree with IA - no link between RP and money transfer etc.

However, bank accounts can be frozen very quickly by simple application to the court by lawyer if you have any outstanding & unpaid bills.

To remove this if you were to get into this situation, you have to take proof of payment to the court (takes a couple of days to register and bank are informed directly by the court)

Re: Frozen bank account?

Unless mistaken all you have to do is transfer to your Turkish sterling account and then transfer via online from Sterling account to the UK, and as previously mentioned providing there is no debts attached.

Re: Frozen bank account?

I transferred money from HSBC Turkey to HSBC UK without any problem and no charges. They don't like you taking your money out but they can't stop you. I never had a RP.
