    Step 1 – On Receipt of Your Complaint:

    On receipt of your complaint our Customer Service Team will acknowledge it and may attempt to resolve the issues with you informally over the telephone if this is appropriate.

    If your complaint cannot be resolved in this way or if the Customer Service Team feels that a more thorough investigation is needed, your complaint will proceed to Step 2 of the complaints procedure.

    Whilst we aim to respond to you within 21 days, as per the guidelines set by the Legal Ombudsman, we have 8 weeks from the date that we receive your complaint to resolve it to your satisfaction.

However, we will always be happy to discuss the issues with you further if you wish to do so prior to taking this step.

    • Six years from the date of the act/omission; or
    • Three years from the date which you should have known you have a complaint to pursue

    The Legal Ombudsman will not however accept complaints where the act/omission or date of awareness was before 6th October 2010.

    Where you have followed our complaints procedure, the time limit for pursuing a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman is no later than six months from the date on which you received a definitive response to your complaint from this firm, or from the last day of the eight week period, whichever is the earlier.

    There are exceptions to the eight week and six months rules. For information relating to those exceptions, please refer to the scheme rules on the Legal Ombudsman website.
