If, for whatever reason, you feel unable to make the complaint personally we are able to accept complaints from another person but, in the absence of express verbal or written consent from you, we will not be able to discuss the details of your case with them. Our response will be directed, in writing, to you. You may wish to consider letting us have specific instructions to deal with another person in these circumstances.
On receipt of your complaint:
We allow ourselves 10 working days from receipt of your complaint to conclude the first stage of our investigations.
In both circumstances this process will be completed within 10 days of your resubmitted complaint.
We will let you know the result of this review no later than 2 days following completion of stage 5. At this time we will write to you confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons. If our investigations find any need for change we will let you know what changes are planned any timescale for their implementation.
In exceptional circumstances we may have to alter the above time scales but if this is the case we will always let you know and explain why.
We do not make any charge to a client who wishes to use our complaints process.
No-Win, No-Fee – What does it mean?
