If you are unhappy with our management of your complaint or with the outcome, or if we have been unable to resolve your complaint within 8 weeks, you may refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman, free of charge.
The Legal Ombudsman may be contacted at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ or by telephone on 0300 555 0333. The office is open Mon-Fri between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm. You may find out more information at www.legalombudsman.org.uk
Please note that the timescales within which you may raise your complaint are contained in the following link:
From 1 April 2023, the time limits for referring a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman are no later than:
• one year from the date of the act or omission being complained about; or
• one year from the date when the complainant should have realised that there was cause for complaint
You must refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of your service provider’s final response.
