3. What happens after you make a complaint?

We'll always try to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible. Where we can’t resolve it there and then, we’ll take it away.

We aim to sort out things as soon as we can and we’ll keep you updated along the way.

After five days

If we haven’t managed to resolve your complaint within 5 working days, we’ll contact you with an update or acknowledgement.

After four weeks

If we’re still investigating your complaint at 4 weeks, we’ll contact you to let you know.

After eight weeks

We’ll send you a final response. Our aim is to resolve your complaint well before this.

 

If your complaint is about a payment or a payment service - such as a Direct Debit or account statement - we aim to respond within 15 days. Sometimes we may take up to 35 days to respond. If so, we’ll let you know.

4. Unhappy with an outcome? 

If you're not happy with the outcome of your complaint, you have the right to refer to the Financial Ombudsman Service within 6 months. This service is free.
