Hi all,

My 6 years was up last may and there is now no record of my BR at all not even on an insolvency search that a solicitor carried out.

However try'd to open a natwest account alongside my other natwest account and they asked for a letter of discharge!! Even after 6 years has passed?

Has anyone ever heard of this or are they just being awkward?

    Sadly they can ask.....barclays did the same with me (in the end I went to natwest instead!)

    Try sending them this..once you get a reply

    Email — > [EMAIL="discharge.queries@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk"][email protected][/EMAIL] and they will need

    Your current and previous addresses
    Date of Birth
    National Insurance number
    Bankruptcy Order number, from the Form 6.30. For example 210/2013 and the court you attended.

    They will then supply in writing confirmation of discharge free of charge.

  • Thanks, I got the confirmation from them already.

    Thanks

    So they won't accept the letter from the, but insist on a certificate from the court that costs you £70? NatWest are idiots if so. I would go somewhere else.

    Yes they are, but I am going for a mortgage next year so I don't want to start switching banks around at the moment.

    I don't have an issue with the £70 I just think that Natwest are backwards!! It costs £1 to do an insolvency search like a solicitor would!
  • Contact Natwest's Insolvency Department and they will sort it for you.

    Branch staff are a bunch of clueless muppets.
