Our Procedure

Your complaint will be investigated by a member of our team whose responsibility is to investigate and resolve any problems you are experiencing.

What will happen next?

  • 1. We aim to send you an acknowledgement letter within five business days enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  • 2. Your complaint will be investigated by a member of our team who will be your complaints handler. He/she will review your matter file and speak to the member of staff who acted for you.
  • 3. Your complaint handler will then invite you to a meeting, either in person or over the phone, to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. He/she will do this within fourteen days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  • 4. Within three days of the meeting or phone call, your complaint handler will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions he/she has agreed with you.
  • 5. If you do not want a meeting or it is not possible, your complaint handler will send you a detailed written reply to your complaint, including his/her suggestions for resolving the matter, within twenty one days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  • 6. Should you indicate to us that you remain dissatisfied following receipt of our response, the matter will be investigated further and we will send you our final response within eight weeks of the original complaint together with details of what you can do if you are not happy with the outcome. If we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why.
