Switching direct debits

There's often bad press and comments about people moving accounts and direct debits between banks but my recent experience was quick and painless.
I wanted to move all my mother's Direct Debits (I had already moved the Standing Orders) from her Barclays account to her existing Nationwide account. This is called a partial switch and told it can take longer than a full switch of up to 10 days. All DDs were transferred within about 5/6 days with payments coming out on time so far this month.
Very happy with that.
Have even had  good experience with closing one of her accounts with Santander over the phone - now that was a pleasant surprise Wink
