We also follow the requirements in The Housing Ombudsman Complaint Handling Code, which sets out good practice that will allow landlords to respond to complaints effectively and fairly.
The Code also acts as a guide for residents setting out what they can and should expect from their landlord when they complain.
As part of the Code, we’re required to assess our complaints handling procedure. Here’s our most recent self-assessment.
The quickest way to resolve an issue is often a phone call to speak to one of our Customer Hub advisors, whenever possible we will resolve the issue straight away, if we are unable to do this to your satisfaction, we will let you know the next steps to get your issue resolved.
