We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service, we have provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.
In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.
If you would like to make a formal complaint please provide full details of the issue to our Complaints Handling Partner Susan Aslan in writing (email@example.com). We will acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days. We will let you know if we require any further information from you regarding your complaint. We may ask you to come in for a meeting to discuss your concerns or speak on the telephone. We will investigate your concerns and reply with a substantive response within 4 weeks from acknowledgement of your complaint.
What to do if we cannot resolve your complaint
The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.
Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:
• Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint and
• No more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
• No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them.
Call: 0300 555 0333 between 9.00 to 17.00.
