Do I have to make the complaint in writing?

No. We are happy to accept complaints by telephone on the above number. Please make it clear that you are registering a complaint and make a note of the name of the person you spoke to and the date on which you rang.

What happens next?

(a) We will acknowledge your complaint promptly and, in any event, within five working days of receiving it. If you have not heard from us in that time, please check first to see that we have received your complaint.

b) We will investigate your complaint fairly, impartially and thoroughly.

c) If we cannot provide you with a full response to your complaint within four weeks, we will send you a letter explaining how we are progressing with our investigation.

d) After we investigate your complaint, we will write to you to explain the outcome of the investigation.

How long will the investigation take?

We will investigate your complaint as quickly as possible. We will aim to complete our investigation within eight weeks of receiving the complaint, and you will always receive our final response in this timeframe.

If we cannot conclude then, we will tell you why and refer you to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

What happens at the end of the investigation?

We will send you a final letter, which will either uphold your complaint and explain how we plan to resolve it or reject it.

What if I am not satisfied with your decision?

If you are not happy with our decision or with the way we have conducted our investigations, you are entitled to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
