Re: Moving back to UK: Airbnb first or straight to Rental ?

Maybe stay in an AirBnb for the first couple of weeks until you sort out a long-term unfurnished rental?
Is there plenty available for long-term rent in the area you’re interested in? I only ask...

Re: Insurance Vie

Thanks Cyrian.
it hadn’t occurred to me that French banks might have similar problems when it comes to offering banking services to customers in the UK but you’re right of course. Having to rent...

Re: Insurance Vie

As a quick aside to the issue of assurance vie, if you leave France and return permanently to the UK, you can keep your French current account open, can’t you? I’m just imagining a scenario where we...

Re: No other option?

But maybe it was a good thing for the children that living overseas « glued » the parents together for longer. We’ll never know, will we.

Re: No other option?

Just to clarify, I think all of us who suggested that medication was an option are in agreement that he should only go down that route on the advice of a doctor. It was the OP’s dismissing it out of...

Re: No other option?

I’m not assuming the OP has a chemical imbalance. But if he did, medication could certainly help, as it could for any other medical condition.
It does sound, though, as if this is just a case of...

Re: No other option?

« On no medication no. Dont believe in it. »

Why not? You could have a chemical imbalance in your brain. You’d take blood thinner if you had blocked arteries. Insulin if you had diabetes. Your...

Re: Reclaim British car licence

I just had a quick look at the Exchange a Foreign Licence section of the relevant UK government website and the first question is “Are you a resident of Great Britain?”. They define being resident as...

Re: Intro and Covid spanner in the works

Hi
Will you be retired or looking for a job in a particular field because, if so, that will presumably be a factor in deciding where to live.
At least this way you’ll have plenty of time to do...

Re: How to change provider and upgrade from ASDL to fibre at the same time

Re: British bank accounts for expats
