I know I need to go on moneyclaim.gov.uk but is that not just a method to get back money I'm owed and not a way to get my name off the bank account?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 9 months ago.

But you will have to pay it before they release you.

You can use this or form N1:

To request payment AND to name the bank to get you removed

Does that clarify?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Ok yes I will fill it in and for now put a stop on the account, would you recommend me paying it or leaving it until the court has decided ?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 9 months ago.

I would do that now. Does that help?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can you clarify please, would you recommend I pay off the bank even though he could be liable equally ? I can only get the account closed with a signature from from ex business partner stating that he wishes to do so
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 9 months ago.

Yes pay it off and then get removed. You wont get the bank to remove you until its paid off

You need a Court order to remove you, as suggested above.
