Hi, i used to be in a business partnership that I left back in Nov 2015, as it was registered here at my home address in getting letters from the bank account for the business, it's £1400 overdrawn, my ex partner will not respond to me, how can I sort this?

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?

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 1 year 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 ?

I would do that now. Does that help?

Customer: replied 1 year 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

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.
