Re: Selling a second home

Hi all So have been through all the docs and have filled in the TR1, AP1 and it says we need to do ID1s and take them to a local office - nearest is Croydon (20 miles) to be witnessed. Is this right? Or am I misunderstanding the current process? So day off work to get there etc - why not get a loca...

Re: HFEL top up

I wonder how LWI are achieving that divi growth rate fishing in the usual pool of uk large caps? Dividend seems to be covered although only just last year. Doesn’t seem like that trend can continue. In the recent half year report they said that instead of charging management fees/costs only to the ...

Re: Interactive Investor up the creek

Thanks, Alaric. I am aware that the cash won't be paid till the whole thing is a done deal, with a court meeting or whatever formalities are required, but in that case why not just leave things as they were and put a note or asterisk saying that they are under offer and no longer saleable, Till it ...

SQN has been a rollercoaster of incompetence, I would suggest one avoids it.

Re: Pension Transfer

I transferred a pension from Zurich to my current SIPP. When I checked with Zurich about any exit penalties or guarantees that might be lost, they also sent me a pack for the transfer which they said *had* to be filled out so I never used the current SIPP provider to do the transfer. I did this and ...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

Good thinking puffster, I have just tried it and it does indeed seem to have worked! Many thanks for taking the trouble to post. All the best, CP Hi CryptoPlankton, I just tried setting this up and it does not work for me (regular ISA to dealing account transfer), bringing up an error message. Havi...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

I now think that you can do it with II. Set up a regular internal transfer (monthly in this case) from the ISA to the dealing account for the amount you ultimately want in your bank account. Then set up a regular payment (monthly) from the dealing account to your bank account for the same amount an...

HYP top up spreadsheet - Mercantile IT

When using the Get Digital Look Forecast Yields button I get a "run time error 91 - object variable or with block variable not set". This seems to be triggered by the Mercantile (MRC) IT which recently went for a 10 for 1 split and it has only happened since this event. The latest HYP 11-5...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

As far as I knew you can do monthly fixed payments from an II ISA, just choose withdraw/transfer cash from the cash transfers menu and specify it to be monthly. Regards, Puffster Hi Puffster I seem to be able to go through that process for my trading account, but not for my ISA - the frequency butt...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

Both Barclays SmartInvestor and Interactive Investor are currently developing the facility to set up regular payments from S&S ISA accounts to nominated bank accounts. This would be handy as it will provide a simple method for drawing a steady income from dividends (leaving sufficient cash in r...

Re: Stock and Share SIPP - transfer to newco

You should be able to transfer your SIPP to another provider - and those charges would suggest that it would be a good idea. The target SIPP provider will arrange the transfer for you. I use AJ Bell Youinvest - there are other options. AJ Bell will cover some of your costs if your existing provider...
