Claims Management Companies (CMCs)
We'll treat your complaint in exactly the same way whether we receive the complaint directly from you or from a Claims Management Company (CMC). You don't need to use a CMC and they'll typically charge an upfront fee or take a proportion of any compensation you may be due. By coming directly to us you'll not be disadvantaged.
If you're still not happy
We'll issue a final response to your complaint when we've completed our investigations. If you're dissatisfied with the final response, you can ask the Financial Ombudsman Service to look at your complaint - provided you've tried to resolve the matter directly with us first. They'll also look at the case if we've taken more than 8 weeks to issue the final response.
We hope you won't need to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service but if you do, please find their contact details below:
