    Payments into NS&I

    Payments into NS&I 13th Jan 18 at 1:37 PM
    Quick question... I will have some residue over from the sale of my house, and want the solicitor to pay direct into my NS&I Direct Saver. It's slightly more complicated because it has to be paid into NS&I holding acct, and my account number put in as the reference. Am I right in assuming this information is correct (I have had contrasting information from NS&I), and has anyone experienced this process? Many thanks for an interesting and informative forum Martin and Co!

    Direct Saver

    All your deposits must be from a UK bank account in your own name.

    I put money from a house sale into a Direct Saver account and there was no need to go through a NS&I holding account, I simply did Faster Payments directly into the Direct Saver, although that was from another of my own accounts so I was compliant with the rule that xylaphone has posted. This was a few years ago so it's possible that it's changed since then - I no longer use the account, although it is still open.
