How long will it take to deal with your complaint?

Where possible we aim to resolve your complaint by the end of the next working day following receipt of your complaint.

If you have made a detailed complaint and it is not possible for us to resolve it by the end of the next working day following receipt of your complaint, then within five working days of receipt, we will write to you to tell you who is dealing with your complaint. If we consider that your complaint would be more appropriately dealt with by another firm, for instance the lender, we will refer your complaint to that firm and provide you with their contact details.

The person dealing with your complaint will investigate the issues you raise and try to provide a final response to your complaint within four weeks. If it is not possible to provide you with a final response within four weeks, we will write to you again to let you know how your complaint is proceeding.

We will endeavour to provide a final response to your complaint within eight weeks however, in the unlikely event the matter remains unresolved, we will write notifying you of the reasons for delay and informing you, where the complaint qualifies, of your right to refer any dissatisfaction to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

Financial Ombudsman Service

If you are not happy with our final response you are entitled to refer the complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service within 6 months.

The Financial Ombudsman offers a free and independent service where, subject to it meeting the qualifying criteria, they will look at your complaint, along with our response. The Financial Ombudsman Service will only consider your complaint after we have provided our final response.

If you want the Financial Ombudsman Service to look into you complaint, you must contact them within six months from the date you received our final response.
