Complaint Acknowledgment Times

Your complaint will be acknowledged within 7 calendar days and we aim to provide a final resolution within 28 calendar days.

However, should your complaint be of a complex nature and should we require a little more time to investigate, we will inform you of this and aim to provide you of a date when you will receive your final resolution by.

Your complaint will be provided to you in writing, via both email and post, providing we have a registered email address on your account with us.

Further Escalation

If you are dissatisfied with the resolution provided by the Complaints Team, or with the way in which your claim has been handled, then you may request that your file is independently reviewed by an external Solicitor who will make such further investigations as are necessary. The external Solicitor will inform you of the conclusion and any alternative proposals to resolve your complaint, usually within 28 calendar days of this being referred to them. Under no circumstances will this investigation take longer than 8 weeks.

Following this final response, you may have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman if your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction. You can contact the Legal Ombudsman at:

PO Box 6806

Telephone: 0300 555 0333

You may take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within 6 months of the expiry of the 8-week period or our definitive response in the meantime.
