Bank run has already started. Soon, I'd anticipate withdrawal limits. I wouldn't worry about the exchange rate loss, I'd get the cash. If there's a loss, so be it; if it worries you, pretend you just went on a cruise holiday. The most important think to remember is that we do not know what the politicians have in-store for us. Remember Greece? Over 100, 000 grand in the bank; the government stole it. (Something like that, I can't remember the details) This is bird in the hand time (cash) you can get folk to do things for cash. Secure the property the best you can, if you can't get it to lock-up stage, you'll need to improvise even if it costs money. Cash and physical metal "now" is the ticket. If things come good, great, if they don't, you'll need cash.
