clueless! Posted May 17, 2007 Share Posted May 17, 2007 Current rules in UK mean that a cheque made out in joint names cannot be paid into the account of one or other of the parties (or so I understand). We have received a rebate (yippee!) from the notaire on the purchase of our house in France (which is in joint names) but the French bank account is in my name only. Is there any way round paying this in to the existing French account (i.e. does the same rule apply Europe-wide)? Otherwise, looks as if it will have to be paid in to our UK account with consequent fee for the privilege! Only other possibility seems to be to change the French account to joint names by providing all the necessary dreary paperwork. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
