We will do all we can to resolve your complaint as soon as possible. If we are not in a position to resolve your complaint within 5 working days, we will send you an acknowledgement.  We may call you for further details to help us with our investigations.

As soon as your complaint has been investigated, we will issue our ‘final response’ which will provide our findings and decision.

So that we are able to investigate your complaint quickly and thoroughly, please include the following:

  • Your contact details and agreement number (if known)
  • A summary of your complaint
  • Names and dates of the people you’ve spoken to
  • How you would like us to make things right

Authorised 3rd Party

If you would like us to deal with a third-party representative about your complaint, such as a member of your family, friend, a debt collection organisation or solicitor, we will providing you have given us the appropriate authorisation beforehand.

Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.

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.
