I have used my Isa allowance for the year tying some money away. I have a fiancee who is a student who hasn't. We want a help to buy Isa which was always planned to be in her name, however she doesn't have an account with Halifax (which seems to be the best HtBI at the moment). As she is a student (final year) it is difficult to open either a regular account (no income) or a student account (near the end). So my question is, could I open a joint current account at Halifax (with my income) and then she on her own can open the help to buy Isa? Does that work? Is that allowed? Are there any other suggestions?

Thank you
