I m back, I claimed £6500 back in October 2006 and I tried my best to manage my account properly, however getting married, moving house and having a baby all put a strain on the finances and I estimate I have had at leats anouther £1k in charges since then.


I am now considering claiming these back too, however I have two bank accounts with HSBC, one of them joint I also have a personal loan.

Is there a chance that HSBC will close all of these accounts and make me move them if I make another claim??


If so what do you guys recommend?

Welcome back Richard, congratulations on getting wed & having a baby.:)


Although the banks have been known to close accounts , citing 'breakdown of relationship' in the current climate I think they'd be unwise to attract that kind of criticism. It is also against regulations to do so.


I wouldn't worry about a parachute a/c unless you have an account that is still going o/d, suffering ongoing chgs and leaving you with too little of your regular income to survive on.


In that situation, moving to a new a/c, leaving the o/d and the unlawful chgs to be sorted after OFT case is resolved, is perhaps the best option.
