In case anyone was wondering:

Transfers in from another provider or from another KRBS ISA are not … Transfers in from another provider or from another KRBS ISA are not permitted

Very low grade website doesnt inspire confidence.

Looks like something you could knock up yourself!

I used to be a mortgage adviser and dealt with Kent Reliance occasionally. Always found them helpful and knowledgeable. If I had money to put in an ISA I wouldn't mind them looking after it. Hope this helps anyone who is thinking of using them but has never heard of them before!

Ok, im confused, so i can or can't transfer my current ISA over? it is currently with Natwest, and they are giving me next to no interest at the mo.

Also, lets say i needed some cash out of it, can i withdraw whenever i want?

Why bother! Walk in to your local crown Post office, speak to one of their Financial specialist, usually available without an appointment, and they will give you 3% fixed, and trsansfer youyr old money as well, but be quick, believe it may be pulled soon.:)

santander, alliance and leicester, sure these were at 3.2% also, and on top of that it looked like it tracked at 2.7% aove the base rate.

I've been with Kent Reliance for several years and have just transfered in £9k to this fixed until Dec 2011 ISA @ 3.25%
Foreign call centre but they are ok to deal with.
Would also recommend Newcastle BS rates + good customer service.
A & L are like one giant call centre but rates are appealing if you like the doubleglazing meets Comet type approach.

yep - this is a much better ISA :thumbsup:

Wouldn't the 4% 4 year fixed deal be better?

Penalty for early withdrawls is only 100 days (Newcastle BS is 180 days for same rate) and it is unlikely that interest rates will shoot up within the next year or so... even if they do you could transfer out then to another provider.

I thought that the Santander deal was 3.2% for new ISAs and only 2.75 for transfers in? In which case as long as the KRBS deal was better than anything else for a year then you'd still be up on the deal even after you loose 100 days interest.

So no good if you want to have access to the money with in the next few months, but as long as it's in for over a year the 100 days interest penelty would be less than the benfits of the higher rate.
