How will we handle your complaint

Once we have assessed the nature of your complaint, we will do everything we can to resolve it within 3 working days.

Some complaints can take a little longer to resolve. If we have not reached a resolution within 3 working days, we will contact you to inform you that the investigation is ongoing.

If the complaint does require further investigation this could take us up to 4 weeks to complete.

In the event we need more than 4 weeks to conclude our investigation, we will send you a holding letter to keep you updated.

If after 8 weeks we cannot agree a resolution, or if you are unsatisfied with the result of our investigation, you will have the right to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service.

If for any reason we have been unable to resolve your complaint within 8 weeks, or if you are unsatisfied with the resolution, you can refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

If you receive a final response letter from us and wish to take your complaint further, you will need to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service within 6 months from the date of our final response.
