Complaints procedure


We are committed to providing a high-quality service to all our clients. When
something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve
our standards.

If you have a complaint, please contact us with the details. We have 28 days to
consider your complaint. If we have not resolved it within this time you may complain
to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

What will happen next?

  1. We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within three days of receiving it, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  2. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing
    your complaint to the director responsible who will review your matter file and
    speak to the member of staff who carried out the service for you.
  3. The director responsible will send you a written reply to your complaint,
    including his/her suggestions for resolving the matter, within 21 days of
    sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  4. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we
    will arrange for another director to review the decision.
  5. We will write to you within 14 days of receiving your request for a review,
    confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons.
  6. If you are still not satisfied, you can then contact The Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London, E14 9SR about your complaint. Normally, you will need to bring a complaint to the Financial Services ombudsman within six months of receiving a final written response from us about your complaint or within six years of the act or omission about which you are complaining occurring (or if outside of this period, within three years of when you should reasonably have been aware of it). For further information, you should contact the Financial Services Ombudsman on 0800 023 4 567 or at
