Information we will need to process your complaint
It is really important to us that we understand your complaint properly as this will help us resolve the issue for you quickly and improve our customer service in the long term. Please make sure you include information about:
- Who you are, including your current contact details and another customer identification number we may have given you
- Full details about what has caused you to complain, when it happened and what we can do for you to put it right
- Any other information you think is relevant to the complaint and can help us resolve it for you.
How we will try to resolve your complaint
Once we have received your complaint, the first thing we will do is try to resolve it for you on the spot. We want to ensure that you receive a prompt and fair outcome to your complaint. If we are unable to do that we will send you an email confirming that we are investigating on your behalf. We may ask you for more information at this point if we think we need to improve our understanding of your complaint.
If we cannot find a solution for you within eight weeks we will send you our final written response which will detail the outcome of our investigation, any final offer we have decided upon and how we came to that decision.
We use email as it helps speed up communication allowing us to resolve your complaint more quickly. If you would like us to communicate using a different method, please indicate that when making your complaint. We will do our best to accommodate your request.
What you can do if you are not happy with our final written response
If you are unhappy with our Final Written Response and wish to appeal further you have the right to make a formal complaint with the Financial Ombudsman Service. You must make sure you do this within six months of receiving the Final Written Response or you may lose your right to ask the Ombudsman to review your complaint.
The contact details for the Financial Ombudsman Service are as follows:
