I have asked to review my income and expenditure with creditfix and they have emailed me a link to create an online affordability passport.
This would allow them to request my bank statements for the past 6 months on my behalf.
My question is, would this affect my relationship with my bank?
I changed my bank account to a basic one when I started my IVA 5 months ago but I'm worried they'll mark me as a risk and might want to stop servicing me.
Obviously I do not intend to apply for any kind of credit, I've just read some stories of people being told to leave and get another account even though they stay in credit.
I am currently passing my dad any extra money at the end of each month to save for emergencies so I don't (hopefully ever) have to apply or borrow money again.
I have my mortgage with my current bank account and I've never been in any arrears with them, it's fixed until 2027 so my IVA will be off my record by then for renewal.
All reviews have been competed with an I&E form, copies of payslips and letters of confirmation for direct debits changing.
I would be very anxious about giving an external company access to my bank account.

do you know if it's ever caused trouble for people? I can't find any reviews for this programme online
I have not heard of any problems caused but with the amount of computerised databases being unintentionally shared these days third party access is something I would, personally, avoid like the plague.
