The following complaint handling service standards will apply:
logging and acknowledgement
We will do this within 2 working days. This might be by way of an email, letter or phone call where we will provide you with the name and contact details of the person who will be resolving your complaint. If the acknowledgement is sent by letter, this may take a few days to arrive in the post.
stage 1 - complaint decision
We will investigate and resolve your complaint within 10 working days of receipt. If within good reason we need more time to fix this, we will agree the deadline with you and update you regularly on the progress. Any extension will not exceed a further 10 working days
stage 2 - appeal decision
If you are unhappy with the outcome of your complaint you can appeal the decision, and we will provide you with the name and contact details of the manager handling your appeal. Your complaint appeal will be reviewed and the outcome decided within 20 working days of receipt. If within good reason we need more time to resolve your appeal, then we will agree the deadline with you and update you regularly on the progress. Any extension will not exceed a further 10 working days. The appeal is the final stage of our complaint process.
If you are unhappy after the appeal stage you can appoint a designated person like a local MP or Councillor to intervene on your behalf, you can find the details of your local MP or Councillor on www.writetothem.com
If you decide not to contact a designated person, you can escalate your complaint to the Housing Ombudsman after eight weeks of the appeal, you can find further information on this process by visiting www.housing-ombudsman.org.uk
As part of our commitment to service improvement, we review our complaints trends and our performance in responding to those complaints. Our complaints performance can be seen below.
