For some, opening a bank account in the UK can prove extremely difficult, especially if you have poor credit / bad credit or no credit history.
Why Banks Perform Credit Checks
Most UK banks perform credit checks which you are required to pass in order to open a bank account with them. This is usually a requirement from a bank as they offer their customers the option of an overdraft facility.
