Making a complaint
If you feel you need to make a complaint, the first thing we'll do is try to sort out any concerns you may have and find a solution. But if something has gone wrong and we haven’t been able to put it right, you can make a formal complaint to us.
You can find out more about how to make a complaint and how we will deal with your complaint in the information below.
We're committed to learning from every complaint we receive and improving things so we don’t repeat mistakes for different customers. By doing this, our aim is to deliver great customer experience as often as possible.
Our customer commitments
Our Customer Commitments set out how we'll deal with your complaint. We will:

You can contact the Housing Ombudsman Service in any of the following ways:
- Through their website

The Housing Ombudsman has put in place a Complaint Handling Code, which provides a framework to support the effective handling and prevention of complaints. The purpose of the Code is to enable landlords to resolve complaints raised by their residents quickly and to use the learning from complaints to make service improvements. Compliance with the Code forms part of the membership obligations set out in the Housing Ombudsman Scheme.
Landlords are encouraged to promote the Code and to share the outcome of their self-assessment with residents. You can read our current self-assessment here.
