You may need to call the Halifax head office for any number of reasons – Halifax offers a unique range of financial services which take it across the financial board, meaning customers may wind up calling the head office to discuss arranging current accounts, investments, mortgages, lending, credit cards or savings.
The Halifax head office contact line is manned by trained and specifically dedicated customer service staff, public relations team members and head office executives with the ability to affect change within the company on a customer’s behalf.
These team members can provide information on any of the myriad banking opportunities with Halifax, answer any questions you might have on accounts, transfers, banking methods and loans, and resolve any issues you are dealing with quickly and effectively.
As they are already situated in the head office, if you have a problem that the standard customer service teams can’t fix, it will be no problem at all to transfer you up through the ranks of staff working at Halifax to find someone with either the required knowledge or the required authority to resolve the problem.
As a result, calling the Halifax head office gives you the opportunity to resolve your problem in one simple phone call – transferring you to a more senior member of staff is as simple as making a phone transfer and can be done there and then while you are on the line.

Halifax is a universal bank operating out of London, UK. It is a division of the Bank of Scotland, one of the most powerful and influential banks in the UK. Halifax is the most popular provider of residential mortgages in the UK, and was originally set up specifically for that purpose.
Planned as a bank that would help struggling people afford their mortgages, Halifax was established in 1853 and was named the Halifax Permanent Building and Investment Society, setting out to help the local working people benefit themselves and get on the property ladder.
Halifax has been made famous in the UK particularly as a result of its clever use of innovative and entertaining advertisement and TV spots. Seen below is a recent advert, which aired first in June of 2016. The bank has also made use of a range of classic pop songs and current big hitters to win over audiences in the past.
