How Declaring Bankruptcy Affects your Personal Banking
Upon declaring bankruptcy, your bank account provider will usually freeze your account, even if you don’t currently have any debts with them in particular. Your bank account is frozen so various checks can be made, this can take up to a few days and will often result in your bank closing your bank account or allowing you to keep a very basic account with them. If your bank account gets closed, you’ll need to open a bank account with a different bank. Which can prove difficult.
Banking for Bankrupts
If you have recently become bankrupt, you may be in the position of having your personal bank account closed and needing to apply for and open another with a different bank. Opening a new bank account with a high street bank can prove a little difficult and may result in being turned down by many.
Most high street banks won’t provide you with a bank account if you are an undischarged bankrupt. An individual will only become discharged from bankruptcy after twelve months.
