UniCredit allowed me to set up a bank account with just a property contract and a passport, even though I did not have the property's keys yet or access to its letterbox. They were good enough to allow my debit card to be delivered to another address. And the bank manageress, who speaks fluent English, was fantastic. She helped with the set up of the bank account and activation of the online banking. The online banking website is in English and very easy to use.

Although I have had never had a need to use a British Embassy in my life, I am sure they are very useful when needed. In terms of my apartment in Szeged, its renovation and paperwork, there was never a need for the British Embassy; I am quite sure it would be the same story for anyone buying a property elsewhere in Hungary.
NOTE: The British embassy in Budapest does NOT issue new passports. If you need a passport in an emergency situation, they can issue you an Emergency Passport Web PageEmergency Passport.
