Best bank account for large amount of cash

I'm looking for advice on where to put my money. I've just sold my house and have about £100,000 in my pocket before I use it to buy my new house next year.

I'm looking to see where is the best place to put my money for about 7 months, if anybody can help. I know interest rates are low but I'd like to make the most of it.

Most bank accounts I have seen are small limits so looking to see if I've missed any good options.

    no - you need to maximise the use of the small limts and then build from there. Several of the small limit ones let you hold a sole and a joint so you could have 3 between you and a partner. It takes a bit of effort setting things up but there aren't any big wins now that the Santander one has dropped from 3% to 1.5%

    You will probably continue to miss them if you keep posting in the wrong forum.

    The Budgeting and Bank Accounts forum is probably the best place for this.
