What we will do if you complain

Timescales for dealing with your complaint
If you send us your complaint in writing, we will write to you within five working days to let you know we have received it.
If you inform us of your complaint by telephone or in person we will write to you within five business days of you telling us. We will confirm in this letter the details of your complaint and ask that you write back to confirm to us that these details are correct.
If we cannot resolve your complaint within four weeks of receipt, we will write to update you about our investigation and to tell you when we will write to you informing you of our decision.
If we are unable to reach a decision sooner, we will contact you no later than eight weeks from the date we first received your complaint. We will then tell you what our final decision is or, if we have not been able to reach a resolution within this time we will give you details of the Financial Ombudsman Service which you can contact about your complaint.

How we will deal with your complaint

When we write to advise you we have received your complaint, we will tell you in that letter the name and job title of the person who is dealing with your complaint. If you have any queries while we are dealing with your complaint, you should contact the person named in that letter.
We will deal with your complaint as quickly as we can. If we have to make a lot of enquiries to investigate your complaint, it may take us longer to reach a decision. It is possible that as part of our investigations we may need to ask you for more information.
While we investigate your complaint we will keep you informed and you will not have to wait any longer than eight weeks to hear the outcome of our review.
We will only use the personal details you give us (when you make your complaint, or later on) to help us deal with your complaint as set out in this complaints handling procedure. The way we use your personal details will comply fully with the Data Protection Act 1998. For more details about how we use your personal details, please see our Privacy Policy

How we will reach our decision

When investigating your complaint, we will always take account of what you tell us. We will reach our final decision based on the outcome of our investigations and what you have told us.
We will assess complaints according to the law and the principles and guidance produced by our regulators – The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) – the Office of Fair Trading.

Telling you about decision

If we can’t reach a decision within eight weeks of receiving your complaint, we will write to you to explain the outcome of our investigation and what we propose to do about it. If we decide your complaint is unfounded, our letter will explain why.
