Hello,
I have online banking and mobile app with Tesco, however I cannot see where it says the name of the account holder and if it is joint or not.
Any idea?
thanks!

    Log on as yourself. List the account numbers.

    Ask your partner to log on. List the account numbers.

    Compare the lists. Any account on both lists is joint.

    To avoid future confusion you can rename the accounts as my/mine, or joint.

    Why don't you and your 'partner' know? You opened the account! Remember you are jointly and severally liable for any payments/costs on the account. I'd get yourself a more reliable partner.

    I never said he is my 'partner'. Are you asking me to get myself a more reliable parent?

    See posts 2 and 3 above - you're the one who responded to the remark about your partner with 'he doesn't have internet banking'. Not the same thing at all as 'I don't have a partner'.

    Why would any account be a joint account if you don't have a partner - who would you have opened it with otherwise, given the risks of a joint account?

    Do they have a secure message function?

    Do you each have debit cards, you for both accounts and the other person for one? Compare cards.

    I expect it's not uncommon for someone to have a joint account with a parent. My father had at least one joint account with his father.

    Unfortunately no and I dread to have to call them and waste all that time for a simple question, that's why I asked here. I have a cold atm and won't be calling them soon either.

    Here is the number to call when your cold has gone.

    Local rate number so wont cost you that much, out of your scheduled minutes if using a mobile.
