The timescales for dealing with a complaint as follows:

  • You will receive an ‘acknowledgement of receipt’ of your complaint from us within three working days of receipt of your complaint
  • Within 15 working days of the acknowledgement, you will receive a full response
  • If we are unable to resolve the matter within the 15 working days as stated above, we will provide you with reasons why we could not meet this time frame and provide you with an estimate of when a full response will be received
  • After our final written response, we may deem the complaint closed.  If we deem the matter closed then we reserve the right not to enter into any further correspondence.

We are members of the Property Redress Scheme.  If you remain unhappy with the response received from us and have exhausted our complaints procedure, you can contact the Property Redress Scheme to ask them to investigate your complaint.  In order to take your complaint to the Property Redress Scheme you must have first carried out the following:
