Complaints during COVID-19
Stage 1 – Initial Complaint
We will contact you within 24hrs or the next working day to discuss your complaint in more detail. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, If your complaint requires a visit to your property we will only do this with your consent and we will follow social distance and PPE guidelines. We will keep you updated and offer a date and time suitable to you if a visit is necessary. This may mean that it may take longer to resolve your complaint. We will ensure that wherever possible we will contact you via email or telephone. Where possible we aim to resolve your complaint within 5 working days.
Stage 2 – Review of the Complaint
If you are unhappy with the initial resolution you can request that the complaint is reviewed. The reviewer will contact you by telephone or email within 24hrs or the next working day to discuss your complaint and the initial resolution, the reviewer may need to visit you to be able to find another resolution and as in Stage 1, this will be with your consent and following social distance and PPE guidelines. This may mean that it may take longer to resolve your complaint but will keep you updated via email or telephone. Our aim is to complete the review within 14 working days.
Stage 3 – The Complaints Panel
If your complaint has still not been resolved, the reviewer can allow you to appeal to the Complaints Panel. The Complaints Panel cannot meet in person at this current time, but all complaint information will be given to them and they can meet with you virtually using video conferencing if this is convenient for you. If you wish to meet with them in person, then the Complaints Panel hearing will be held at a future date restrictions have been eased and when it is safe to do so. Time scales will be determined depending on the case, but you will be kept informed throughout the complaints process. In normal circumstances we aim to convene the Complaints Panel within 28 working days of the appeal.
The Housing Ombudsman Service remains available at this time once you have completed the Group’s complaints process.
The Housing Ombudsman
Please note: The Ombudsman will normally only consider your complaint if you have gone through our complaints process first.
Once our complaints process has ended, if you’re unhappy with the outcome of your complaint, you can apply to the Independent Housing Ombudsman Scheme, of which we’re a member. Currently you should do this through the democratic filter, i.e., your MP, a Councilor or a Designated Tenant Panel, or wait 8 weeks from the date of our reply.
