GOT YOUR MESSAGE hope this is okay...
I would welcome your advise & experience on this question.
Sorry about the long wind.....
Booked in to go bankrupt with my husband on 28th June 9:00am - plan to get a basic bank joint bank account sorted the following day 29th.
Is this correct David or could i try to sort a basci account on the same day as the bankruptcy??.
We have had to take two days holiday from work to sort this and I am only trying to prempt any problems as we are not guranteed being able to get a basic account.
I have been in touch with a couple of the banks that offer basic accounts and have clarified that they would prefer you to come with an appointment rather than just turn up.
So If I could make the appointments on the same day as well as the day after the bankruptcy this would give me more of a chance of getting a basic account sorted.
Can I have more than one - I dont really want this but would like to apply for more than one to see which will let me have one and which proves to be the best. I could close the others as soon as I know...
If the worse does come to the worse I will go to the Woolwich with £50 as you advised me before.
My real worry is getting a basic account sorted ASAP so that our salaries can be paid in and so that we can pay DD etc I know I can get salry paid into the Woolwich but they dont offer the other.
One of my bank accounts is a coop account so I dont think they would be to keen on letting me have a basic account as I owe them £100 ( one hundred)
Any pointers you could give me would be really appreciated.
