I moved to Glasgow recently and I need to open a bank account ASAP in order to pay my rent. I considered 4 banks: Bank of Scotland doesn't suit me as it takes them 2 weeks to open an account. I also went to The Royal Bank of Scotland and I was told there that they might charge me for receiving money from my home country (which is in the EU). Do you guys know if Lloyds TSB and Clydesdale would charge me for that as well? This seems a little crazy to me, if I was the one sending money, that's be fine, but paying when the money is sent to me... ridiculous.
If you know anything about that, please reply!
Thanks in advance

They charge you for receiving money? I've never heard of that. What are you talking about, wire transfer or WU or what?
