If you’re not happy with the response to your complaint

If you feel we’ve not considered all of your issues or you can provide further information, please let us know and we’ll be happy to review it.

If you’re unhappy with the outcome, subject to your insurers and the procedures followed, you can ask the Financial Ombudsman Service to carry out an independent review of your complaint. In any event, you have the right to ask them to review your complaint if we’ve been unable to resolve it within 8 weeks. The Financial Ombudsman Service can help with most complaints but if you are unsure whether the Financial Ombudsman Service will consider your complaint, please contact them directly for advice. The service they provide is free and impartial and contacting them at any stage of your complaint will not affect your legal rights.
