Services – Sabadell Bank

Regarding the post about transferring from Madrid to Torrox – we were automatically moved from Lloyds to Sabadell when they were taken over, and to the Torrox branch. Took ages to get the new cheque book – and as Torre del Mar is better for us, I asked about transferring. I was told then (several years ago) that I would virtually have to close one account and reopen another to do this, and apply for a new cheque book etc (probably not so important now, as you rarely need cheques with online banking). As I rarely need to go to the branch, I didn’t bother – but Madrid is another matter! I have always found the staff at Torrox helpful, maybe it would be worth calling in there and explaining to them to find the best way of doing it.

Hope this helps    Wendy

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
