    Help To Buy ISA 17th May 17 at 3:30 PM
    I opened a Halifax Help To Buy ISA last year. I was not a home owner and opened an account. A few months later i start courting and now i am getting married. My parents have kindly bought a house for us. The house is registered in my name. I have not needed the money in my Help To Buy ISA, nor have requested the the extra money from the scheme. Do i now have to close my Help to Buy ISA, or can i keep it open to benefit from the better interest rate?
