You can apply for an overdraft and add an additional person to make it a joint account as part of our application form.
The form should take around 5 minutes to complete and you'll need your old bank details to hand.
Your switch begins – We will contact your old bank and start the process of transferring your payment arrangements to your Halifax current account.
We switch your payment arrangements and make sure your Halifax account is ready for the switch date, which takes a couple of days.
On Day 6, check your funds if you are clearing a debit balance on your old account, you will need to make sure there are enough funds in your Halifax account to cover this transfer. By Day 7 your switch will be complete and your old bank account is closed.
For 36 months after your switch, payments sent to or requested from your old account will be redirected to your new account.
