We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we have provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.
In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.
What do to if we cannot resolve your complaint
The legal ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.
Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the legal ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the legal ombudsman:
- Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint
- No more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
- No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
If you would like more information about the legal ombudsman, please contact them:
Call: 01616 966 229 between 9am to 5pm.

While the Legal Ombudsman handles complaints about the services we provide, or our fees for the services, the SRA deals with complaints about conduct. Further information is available on the SRA website.
