Our Complaints Handling Process
We aim to resolve complaints as quickly as possible and within 3 working days of receiving your complaint. If your complaint is resolved within 3 days, we will send you a Summary Resolution Communication that includes contact details for the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). If you are dissatisfied with our response, you can refer your complaint to the FOS within six months from the date of the Summary Resolution Communication.
However, some complaints are more complex and may require more time to investigate and resolve. If this is the case, we will write to you within 5 working days of receiving your complaint, summarising the complaint to ensure we have understood it correctly. We will also provide you with a paper copy of this document, ‘Making A Complaint’.
We will keep you updated throughout our investigation into your complaint and will write to you after 4 weeks if we are still investigating your complaint.
When we have completed our investigation, we will write to you within eight weeks and provide you with a Final Response, or a response that explains any further delay in investigating the complaint, and why we are unable to provide a final response at this stage.
If you are not satisfied with our response, you can refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. You have six months to do this from the date of our Final Response or our response that explains further delay with the investigation. We will provide you with a FOS leaflet or link to the online version of the leaflet at this stage of the process.
