Making a complaint
If you have any concerns about how your claim is being handled please raise this with your file handler in the first instance. In most cases an informal conversation with your file hander will resolve any queries/issues you have.
However, if you do not feel that your concerns have been resolved then please escalate your complaint to the Complaints Partner in order that your complaint can be formally investigated through the firms Complaints Procedure. Our complaints partner is Alasdair Brown who can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at: Suite 9, The Granary, Barton Road, Manchester, M28 2EB.

3. We will then invite you to a meeting to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. He will do this within 14 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
4. Within three days of the meeting, Alasdair Brown will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions he has agreed with you.
