Our complaints procedure is designed to ensure that each complaint is dealt with fairly and to your satisfaction. We aim to resolve your complaint within 48 hours, however if we are unable to do so we will send an acknowledgement letter within 5 working days of your complaint being received. If our investigations are not completed within 3 weeks, we will confirm by letter the reasons for the delay.
If our investigations have not been completed within 8 weeks, we will outline our findings to you by letter, explain why we have been unable to resolve the issue and highlight your referral rights to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
We will be pleased to deal with all your concerns, however if your complaint relates to additional services offered to you via a third party, you may wish to contact them directly.

Payment Protection Insurance Complaints
If you have already made a complaint to us you do not need to do anything. We will be in touch as soon as we have an update on your case.
If you have a concern about how your PPI Policy was sold, it's easy for you to contact us directly so you donít need to use a Claims Management Company (CMC) who will typically charge an upfront fee or take a proportion of any compensation you may be due. We assess complaints sent directly to us in exactly the same way that we treat complaints from a Claims Management Company, so by coming direct you will not be disadvantaged.
Referral to an Ombudsman
We are committed to resolving complaints whenever possible through our complaints procedure. If we are unable to resolve your complaint we will provide you with details of how to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. The Financial Ombudsman Service is an independent service for consumers with unresolved complaints about financial firms and offers a flexible and informal dispute resolution service.
