Hi, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, this will depend on the terms and conditions of the bank - it is usual for joint accounts to only be closed upon signing by both holders. However, you should inform them that you have now separated from your partner and you wish to freeze the account and remove any overdraft limit to avoid the account becoming overdrawn which will put you at risk of debt.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
