What happens next

When you've made your complaint, we will:

  • Send an email / letter to let you know that we’ve received it (as long as you’ve provided a valid email address). If a complaint is complicated, we may need to take some time to investigate so we’ll email you or phone you to let you know if there are any delays.
  • Investigate your complaint. If your complaint is upheld, we’ll offer an explanation and an apology. If it is appropriate, then we will take any actions needed to solve the problem fully.

We will aim to meet the following timetable when dealing with your complaint:

  • We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint within 5 days, so you can be sure it has been properly received. If we need further information or any evidence to resolve your complaint we will say so in this letter.
  • We will aim to issue our final response to your complaint within 8 weeks, though if your complaint is complex, we may require more time, we will inform you prior to the 8 weeks deadline. If you are still unhappy with our findings you can request the complaint to be looked at by a Company Director.

If you feel the complaint has still not been resolved you have the right to refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service at South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London, E14 9SR. The ‘Final Response’ will be accompanied by a booklet explaining how to take your complaint further in this way. Please note that the Financial Ombudsman Service will only step in once we have had the opportunity to investigate matters fully.
