Thinking of opening a joint bank account?
If you need to share money with your partner, flatmate or friend, then a joint account could be the answer
Why opening a joint account adds up
Who can open a joint account?
The good news is that any two people can open a joint account together – you don’t have to live at the same address, and you don’t have to be married.
You just need to make sure that you both meet the normal requirements for a sole current account. That means you need to be over 18 to apply. Subject to status.
And remember that ‘joint’ means ‘joint’ in all things. So you’ll both have control over the account. But you'll also both be liable for paying off any debt if you go overdrawn.
