Hey guys! This is probably a really stupid question, but I've literally got zero experience with banks, and a google search isn't providing a conclusive answer so if someone could just tell me I'd really appreciate it

I need to put the rent money into my friends account. My bank is the Yorkshire Bank and the account I need to put money in is with Halifax.

I've got his name, his sort code and his account number, is that everything I need? Will there be a charge?

Can I go to Yorkshire bank and sort it all out there or do I need to have the money in cash and go straight to Halifax?

The person I'd usually ask this information from isn't in my life anymore, and I'm kinda embarrassed to ask anyone else because I should really know how to do all this stuff already. If you could help me out I'd appreciate it!

You can either go into halifax and put the money into his account or you could do it through online/telephone banking if you have it set up

Do I have to take the cash there or is it possible for Halifax to take it out of my bank? Just that it's a lot of money to be carrying around

I don't have a cheque book? It's just a debit card and a savings account.

It depends on them. I had to pay £30 into a friends account. I had to draw out the money and pay it into his account. (Co-op)

Do you do online banking? I can't really help otherwise, I do everything online. If I were you I would go to Yorkshire bank and ask, they probably get asked that kind of stuff all the time, you have to find out somehow.

It would be easier if you withdrew the money first and then went to halifax

Well I am just turned 61 so I I too have to learn this: I don't think your answers have been very helpful.

I am going to investigate this BACs thing for my lump sum but I you are going to do this by a weekly/monthly arrangements; firstly register for online and telephone banking with YB (I had to do this so I know it is possible!).

Speak to a real human being and set up a Direct Debit to Halifax.

Just to let you know, this thread is 6 years old so I’m not sure anyone would get back to you! Something to think about before posting in future.

However... if you have online banking it will usually be an option on there. You will need the receiving account number, sort code and bank name. Alternatively, go into your bank and say “I would like to transfer £X” to this bank account, and present the written details to the cashier. The transfer should be free of charge in most accounts.

I hope that helps you!

it's safer that you go to your bank and ask.
