We will try to resolve your problem whenever possible within 1 working day.
If we are unable to resolve your complaint within 1 working day we will record your concern as a formal complaint within our internal complaints procedure to be dealt with as follows:
- Upon receipt of your formal complaint we will issue a prompt acknowledgement if we are unable to respond in full within five working days.
- Based on the nature of your concerns and the information provided we will use all the information at our disposal to investigate and resolve your complaint. We may need to contact you for further information as part of this process if it will help us to resolve the matter.
Resolving your complaint
A full and final response will be issued within 8 weeks from the date we receive your initial complaint, setting out our understanding of your concerns and a possible resolution.
If we are unable to issue our full and final response within 8 weeks we will write to you to update you on the progress of your complaint and the expected resolution date.
We are committed to ensuring all complaints are fairly addressed. However, if you are still unhappy with the outcome of our full and final response, or if 8 weeks have passed and we have been unable to respond, you have the following options:-
- If you prefer, or if you feel you have additional information to support your complaint, let us know as we would welcome the opportunity to help resolve the matter in full.
- Alternatively, you may choose to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service for an impartial review and would need to do so within 6 months of our final response:
