Complaints resolution

We understand that complaints are a valuable form of customer feedback. Our aim is to resolve complaints quickly, and to use the data and learning from complaints to improve our services.

When you raise your complaint, you deserve only the highest standards so we make sure we meet the Housing Ombudsman Complaint Handling Code and the Regulator of Social Housing’s consumer standards as they ensure we do right by you. Read our Complaints Policy here.

Our definition of a complaint is in line with the Housing Ombudsman’s Complaint Handling Code. We define a complaint as:
an expression of dissatisfaction, however made, about the standard of service, actions or lack of action by the landlord, its own staff, or those acting on its behalf, affecting a resident or group of residents.

We’ll treat any such expression of dissatisfaction as a complaint even if you haven’t used the word ‘complaint’.

We recognise the difference between an initial request for service and complaints and will take appropriate steps to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

Our annual complaints handling report and self-assessment 

Since 1 April 2024, we've adopted a new Complaint Handling Code to serve you better. This Code comes from the Housing Ombudsman Service and is designed to ensure we address your concerns fairly and quickly.

What this means for you:

  • Simpler complaints process
  • Clear steps and timelines
  • Faster resolutions
  • Your rights clearly outlined.

We're required to submit an annual complaints handling performance report and self-assessment form against the Code. You can read our latest report here and self-assessment form here.

Our Board's response to our report and self-assessment:

“Your feedback is invaluable to us, especially when our services fall short. It helps shine a light on the areas where we need to improve.

We’re sorry that our responses to your concerns and the quality of our repairs service have not always met the high standards you rightly expect. As a Board, we take any failure to deliver on our promises very seriously. Please know that we hear you loud and clear and we're committed to making things right. We’ll continue to actively listen to your feedback and take the necessary actions to address any issues.

Over the next 12 months, we’ll be focusing on improving our complaint resolution process and providing you with a consistently reliable, high-quality repairs experience.”
