BECAUSE you can start saving at that age then take out the mortgage 2 years later the point of the account is not to take out a mortgage straight away !!!!!!

I asked how long the mortgage appointment lasts when you close the account and they told me an hour and a half.. when I close this account I basically have no real intention of getting any kind of mortgage let alone one with Abbey/Santander so does anyone have any tips on the best way to make the mortgage appointment as short a possible?
My initial thoughts were just to go through the rigmarole and when they come up with a mortgage suggest that it isn't competitive and that I'd like to consider other mortgage providers?

They may not like the fact that they can't try and sell you a mortgage, but they may also appreciate your honesty as they will not be wasting their time either!
I'm currently looking at opening this account. However I don't have a cheque book so would I be able to open the account and then do a bank transfer a few days after/at time of opening of £5k and not be penalised for it. Failing that what are my options? Thanks
