    Sadly #1 daughter is recent widow - current house (£200K) mortgage free; some £275K due from insurance etc
    Proposal is to relocate near to us and purchase property (upto £250K) as a Cash buyer, then sell original house and invest proceeds long term
    Question - what’s best location for the £275K keeping good access to expedite New property purchase?
    Any suggestions (sensible please)

    rent out the first house through an agent.

    She could put it in any bank and be protected under the FSCS 'Temporary High Balance' cover. This lasts for 6 months.
