Managing Your Complaint

We are committed to providing you with the best possible service. Although most of our customers are happy with the service they receive from us, we know that sometimes we don’t get it right the first time. We do take complaints very seriously and always apologise for mistakes or instances when customer service does not meet our high standards.

If you are not satisfied with any aspect of one of our products or services, please tell us. We would like the chance to put it right.

Contacting us

When you contact us, please provide us with as much information as possible. This should include your account information, details of your complaint and what you would like us to do to put things right. We won’t charge you for raising a complaint.

How long it will take?

We aim to resolve most our complaints there and then. If we are able to resolve your complaint within 3 business days to your satisfaction, we will send you a Summary Resolution Communication which will confirm this and also provide details of the Financial Ombudsman Service.

If we are unable to resolve your complaint within 3 business days, we will send you a letter to let you know and we will keep you regularly informed of our progress until your complaint is resolved.

What to do if we can’t reach an agreement?

The Financial Ombudsman Service is an independent organisation which helps to resolve complaints that customers and financial institutions haven’t been able to resolve themselves. If you are not satisfied with our response, or if we’ve been unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks, you can refer the matter to them. You can contact them as follows;
