If we cannot reach agreement with you

If we can’t agree a solution within 8 weeks and your complaint relates to our credit brokerage service, we will:
– Send a letter giving our reasons for the delay and an indication of when we expect to provide a final decision
OR

Our aim is to resolve all credit brokerage related complaints internally. However, if after receiving our final decision letter or 8 weeks have passed you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
