IN-HOUSE COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE
If you think, after speaking with the local Branch staff, that your complaint has not been resolved, you are invited to make a formal complaint in writing by email or letter. Please provide a written summary of your complaint and address it to our Head Office, Shelton & Lines, 37 Droitwich Road, Worcester WR3 7LG – firstname.lastname@example.org. Your complaint will be acknowledged within 3 working days of being received. The Branch Sales/Lettings Manager will make contact with you to discuss the matter further prior to launching a full investigation. Upon completion of the investigation, you will be advised of the outcome in writing within 14 working days of receipt of the original complaint.
If, after a full investigation, you feel that your complaint remains unresolved, you may refer the matter to a Director who will personally conduct a separate review of your complaint. You will receive an acknowledgement from the Director within 3 working days and a full response within 14 working days.
If you remain dissatisfied, after completing the above steps you can then contact The Property Ombudsman to request an independent review: 0330 440 1634 - Ombudsman Services, P.O. Box 1021, Warrington, WA4 9FE.
