Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure

What happens next?

You will receive a written or electronic acknowledgment of your complaint within five business days of receipt, identifying the person who will be handling your complaint.

Within four weeks of receiving the complaint:

We will send you either;

a. a final response which adequately addresses the complaint.

b. a holding response which explains why we are still not in a position to make a final response, give reasons for the further delay and inform you that you may refer the handling of the complaint to the Claims Management Regulator if you are dissatisfied with the delay.

The outcome.

Where we decide that redress is appropriate, we will provide you with fair compensation for any acts or omissions for which we are responsible and will comply with any offer of redress which you accept. Appropriate redress will not always involve financial redress.

If we do not hear from you within 14 days of receiving our final response we will assume that your complaint has been resolved.

What to do if you are not satisfied with our response.

If we are unable to help you after 8 weeks, then you can have the complaint independently looked at by the Legal Ombudsman.

The Legal Ombudsman can investigate complaints up to six years from the date of the problem happening or within three years of when you found out about the problem. If you wish to refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman this must be done within six months of our final response to your complaint.
