    Joint account 19th Apr 17 at 7:39 AM
    Our mortgage has been approved subject to valuation. Obviously we still have a way to go yet, but planning ahead want to open a joint account for bills etc in the next few weeks. I'm aware you don't apply for credit until completion incase it affects the offer, but does this include a new bank account?

    Yes. A credit search will be carried out.
