    Halifax Joint Account

    Halifax Joint Account 12th Aug 09 at 3:28 PM
    I was wondering if somebody could advise me please?

    I have a joint account with the Halifax with my ex husband. We are now divorced and i'm in the process of buying him out of our house. We have had a joint account for years and all the bills get paid out of it. My ex has been putting in half the money for our mortgage payment since we split. This months mortgage payment should be the last one where he needs to pay as the mortgage on the house will be complete and he won't own it anymore. What i am asking is how do i go about getting his name of the account? I am the lead account holder but i am told i need his permission which he isn't giving (he won't answer my e-mails) So at the end of the month i will be paying around 600 pounds into this account and he will have access to it! I'm not sure i can close the account without his permission but i don't want to as all my direct debits come out of it and i find it a useful way of handling my money.

    Is there anything i can do? Can i put a bock on any money being withdrawn but my Direct Debits still get paid. I never draw any cash out, just pay in every month. I'm quit worried about this as i know he has online access to this account. Any suggestions?
