“Certainly give you EXTRA!!!”

Written on: 14/07/2016 by Dianaw485 (1 review written)

The current Halifax advertising campaign - about "the bank that gives you extra" - is absolutely correct, but not in the way that they mean!! The Bank: Charge you EXTRA commission on currency transactions; EXTRA poor exchange rates on foreign cheques; EXTRA long delays in processing foreign cheques; EXTRA incompetence in dealings with customers; EXTRAordinary inconsistencies in what its own various departments tell you!! EXTRA carelessness in handling customer complaints!! As an example: A… Read Full Review

“Beware switching joint account”

Written on: 14/04/2016 by Shiver46 (1 review written)

I have recently opened an account in my name with a view to switching our joint account. This according to the Halifax website is how it is done. However they did not allow me to change it to a joint account leaving me with an account I did not want. In a phone call to them moments after opening the account online i was informed they would not close it unless I put it in writing. So I was supplied with debit card and pin for an account that I did not want. At no time was any interest shown or… Read Full Review

“Just awful”

Written on: 28/03/2016 by LWinter (1 review written)

One of the worst banks I have ever had to deal with. I was left exhausted trying organise the most simple things - even paying off a balance. Long call wait times and more often than not very unhelpful staff. They also call at 9pm and 10pm at night, even though you have asked them not to as you have children. Thank goodness I don't have to deal with them anymore. My advice would be to avoid them at all costs… Read Full Review

“Banking proccesses”

Written on: 12/03/2016 by Leefisher (1 review written)

Sending a payment (or not) has never been more frustrating, on sending a payment to a relative to repay a debt, firstly payment suspended for security reasons, and then the issues started. A text came stating I could log in and cancel or accept payment, when logging in this process was not available. I called the help line who were unable to help, and transferred me to another department which took so long to answer I gave up. I am still at a loss as to the purpose of the text and what this… Read Full Review

“My mind is made up.”

Written on: 09/03/2016 by luRoach32 (1 review written)

After being with Halifax since 1991 today I have decided that I can no longer put up with their dreadful service . I have a file of how they have managed to fail to meet my expectations. On two occasions they have made appointments with the incorrect branch, which were a total waste of time. On numerous occasions they have failed to carry out written instructions which I have then had to sort out. Today has been the final straw. It appears that when an account ends its term of interest,it then… Read Full Review

“WATCH OUT FOR THE RENEWAL LETTERS”

Written on: 02/03/2016 by EverydaySaver (1 review written)

Make sure you renew your products at the right time otherwise they take effect on the day you do them and you could lose interest. The on-line renewal forms don't advise you of this either so double check when you're ready for it to take effect there and then. I complained about this but they don't agree that their correspondence is misleading… Read Full Review

“Mess up correspondence address”

Written on: 24/02/2016 by Byrdar398 (1 review written)

I have been a customer for more than 15 years. All my bank accounts, investment accounts and share dealing accounts are with this bank. I also have 2 mortgages with them. Over the years, this bank earned a lot of money from and through me. I am so frustrated when after a year of having the mortgages with the bank and have been receiving letters from them at the correct address, the annual mortgage statements was delivered at my old address. When I called the mortgage centre, they said they… Read Full Review

“unsafe bank”

Written on: 23/02/2016 by firebyrd (48 reviews written)

Went to close my account at the Hyde branch taking out a large sum. I was NOT asked for any ID, I was NOT asked any security questions, I was NOT asked to use my chip and pin and my signature was NOT checked against my card. The cashier happily gave the money over no questions asked. I could have been absolutely anyone and she didn't seem to care. It made it worse as that's not my branch,I don't often go in and no one knows me, I wrote to head office explaining saying I would never come back to… Read Full Review

“mortgage”

Written on: 14/01/2016

i have been trying to switch to a new deal for the past 6 months and there was a indicator on my account. I called them several times and asked for it to be removed. I also made an official complaint and I was told that it was taken off. When I tried to switch to a new deal again, it was declined due to the fact that there was still an indicator on the account. The worst bank and poor customer service. They really don't care about their customers at all. It's all about how they achieve their… Read Full Review

“Reliable bank and other services”

Written on: 10/01/2016 by AydinMiddleton136 (1 review written)

I've been with Halifax for years now and always thought they were fine but this year they have really impressed me. First off with our mortgage application and then with some credit card fraud. We had applied for a mortgage with another company and they had taken close to 8 weeks and then declined us so we had a very short time to find a new one or risk losing our dream house and Halifax were excellent. The rate wasn't much worse than the one we had originally picked and the whole mortgage… Read Full Review

“HALIFAX MADE US SO ANGRY!”

Written on: 05/11/2015 by olMitchell339 (1 review written)

I went with my aunt to help her sort out two newly matured Halifax accounts and to up the interest rates which had fallen to near zero. It was taking so long that we had to leave and went back several days later. We were then told that we needed an appointment and there was no one to deal with this. We went to another branch and it was the same there. They were rather more helpful and courteous at the second branch and suggested we arrange for the accounts to be updated online and gave us the… Read Full Review
