It's a hard way to learn that banks can be rubbish when things go wrong, but I guess you will take more care next time.
It's such a nightmare transferring to a bank that doesn't provide information for the check to work so you have to proceed without a check. This was my own mistake but I can't help thinking that in circumstances where the destination account doesn't even exist at all the money should bounce straight back. It would also be helpful if the receiving bank validated on name as well as sort code and account.
It would be the receiving bank who got agreement from the account holder to return the money.
