Sometimes it’s easier to stay with an unsatisfactory bank, than to research and change to a different one, particularly if you have several accounts. It could be out of the frying pan…

However, a new French law says that if you wish to change your bank, it’s down to the bank to sort out all the paperwork, organise the stopping of monthly payments etc – not you. All you have to do is tell them you’re leaving, sign a form…and in theory, Robert est ton oncle!

Whether, in practice, the bank will carry out this new order diligently remains to be seen!
