Don't bother using them as they are expensive and you want to trade over 3k then you are routed to the helpline so they can take further money off you. Historically we have had 4 share dealing accounts with Lloyds but no more. Shareprice etc is by far a better option with cheaper trading and no half yearly fees… Read Full Review

The true star rating should be minus 5....this service if one can call if that is absolute rubbish... They can not do any volume orders on the internet...Even major ftse companies like Sbry Barc,,ect...You do not even know if you have bought the shares or not and at what price....last trade had to ring them up and wait in a line for ten minutes while the price fluctuates all the time ....and the value wa £116k ....not a lot for major traded… Read Full Review

I liked the old site before they switched last summer.I have quite a few OIEC funds. They have a button called Research which when it is pressed brings up a mixture of up to-date information about Funds mixed up with stuff that is years out of date and is potentially very misleading to the novice investor. I have complained about this in writing but essentially I have been given a polite brush off. I am reluctantly presently looking around for a better share dealing site. Alex … Read Full Review

Used these for like 9 months, total waste of money. Invested £150, made a huge increase in shares and should of walked away with around £260, was billed so heavily on this that I made virtually no profit. Then was charged to close the account, and for having an account. Their charges are totally unrealistic. In the end made a loss. WASTE OF TIME, AVOID!… Read Full Review

I have been a customer of the old Lloyds TSB share dealing service for many years. The move to the new "Halifax" supported system has been awful. I have two accounts with them an ISA and what was a nominee account now just described as a share dealing account. Since the move I have had to communicate with them almost every time a dividend has been paid to me. Initially the dividends were being paid to the old share dealing service as that's where the shares resided on ex dividend day. This… Read Full Review

The new Lloyds Bank share dealing platform operated on the Halifax base is worse than useless You get to the stage of doing a deal and it comes up with a message "The site you are trying to connect to is unavailable" Then if you try to buy in any volume they will not give you a live price, but refer you to deal at best So they expect you to trust them to get a good deal for you Not on your life They have tried to tell me my browser is not working Funny if I want to buy £500 it works… Read Full Review

Since June 3rd, Lloyds have moved away from a credit based system to the more usual (but less helpful to the customer) system of needing to have the cash available in your share dealing account before making a purchase. As a result you can no longer: 1. Day trade: To day trade, you now need the money in your account first. In the past, all you need is to pay (or receive) the balance at the end of the day when the shares are sold. 2. If you trade in your wife's name as well as your own, and… Read Full Review

The list of problems I have had with lloyds seems endless the best way I think is to list but a few. The worst thing I think is the dealing part as it is set up giving very little information on the platform and seems to have different rules to all other traders and higher and lower prices depending on if you are buying or selling and is consistantly the worst deal on the market!you used to be able to track this on the site and see for yourself that you were getting a bum deal but with… Read Full Review

Only a real novice would buy shares on the lloyds tsb share dealing service. I was such a novice, and it's been an expensive education! Start with the 15 quid transaction charge - that's 15 quid every time you buy or sell shares. Say you are selling 500 quid of shares, that means you can knock 30 quid off your profits for starters. For 500 quid, a 10% increase in value would be regarded as phenomenal performance in the market - but Lloyds are already nicking 6% of your investment. Nice. So… Read Full Review

Lloyds TSB should not be allowed to provide this service if they are turning into a government/tax payers' owned bank. Had a corporate action recently and they failed to inform the last payment date or providing the complete schedule of CAs. As a result, I missed the Corporate Action completely and lost £2k for their ineffectiveness. Basically, Im paying them periodically for a rubbish service.
If you want to keep them, just remember that you have your shares there but the rest of the work… Read Full Review

I have a share portfolio in a Lloyds TSB nominee account and have not been able to trade since the twentythird of October because of an IT error.
Until an hour ago I couldn't sell, couldn't buy, so the capital tied up was unavailable to me. No apologies, I had to do all the phoning.
It is solved now they told me.
If I had known their was a risk of such incompetence, I would not have used Lloyds TSB share dealing… Read Full Review

Lloyds TSB sharedealing should not be allowed to be in business, really. Today again their service is unavailable, lost lots of money, or possible profit due to not being able to put trades through, quite appaling… Read Full Review

Spent one day ringing Lloyds but they hd technical difficulties. That lasted all day! Rang again today to purchase shares, again difficulties and not sure if transaction went through. This had taken a good half hour on the phone. Their agent tells me he will put a call back as priority and ring me within 3 hours? Still waiting for call back 12 hours later. I assume they either can't be bothered or are to incompetent to do wht they promised. I rate them at a complete zero nd thats being kind… Read Full Review

I could not disagree more with the other reviewer. I have had a dealing account with Lloyds TSB for the past 3 years and it's steadily got worse. It suffers from 'technical difficulties' all too frequently, making it impossible sometimes to even log on..let alone execute a trade. At other times it just 'hangs' when you are attempting to trade. There's nothing wrong with my PC and Lloyds have always acknowledged that it is a problem at their end. Apologies are of little use when you lose… Read Full Review

I use 4 online stockbrokers. Beside Lloyds TSB stockbrokers, Barclays looks cheap and cheerful but always does the job in the end...albeit at times only after you swear at it a bit. Waterhouse is a serious contender for Lloyds in the areas of information on broker sentiment and financials. But its colour scheme is bilious, its layout and general organisation is rather like North American cars - solid, reliable, a long way behind the times, and in the end rather sad looking, if not pathetic. I… Read Full Review
