In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the individual who is working on your case to discuss any concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can access our full complaints procedure here. Making a complaint about a service issue will not affect how we handle your case. We will comply with our regulatory responsibilities at all times.
What to do if we cannot resolve your complaint
The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.
Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:
1. Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint
2. No more than six years from the date of the act/omission; or
3. No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
