OUR FINANCE and INSURANCE COMPLAINTS HANDLING PROCESS
We value all our customers and aim to provide a first class service at all times, including in complaints handling. This page outlines our complaints handling process for finance and insurance complaints which are products regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
All complaints received are treated with confidentiality and in accordance with the requirements of data protection legislation.
We will always strive to investigate and resolve your complaint promptly and fairly and as a minimum, we will ensure that we:
- Acknowledge your complaint in writing within 5 working days of receipt
- Investigate your complaint fully and impartially obtaining all information as necessary
- Within 8 weeks we will write to you with either a final response confirming the outcome of our investigation, or a response which confirms the progress of our investigation detailing the reasons for delay.
- Our final response to you will set out our final view on the issues raised in your complaint and tell you whether we are accepting or rejecting your complaint. In both circumstances, we shall provide a full explanation of how we have reached a decision.
- If once you have received our final response or after eight weeks, you are not satisfied with our response, you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. You must do so within 6 months of our final response to you.
