    If you need help more urgently, we're here. Please phone or message us through our Mobile Banking app, or visit us in branch. Otherwise, please know that we’re working on your case as quickly as we can.

  • 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.

    • We will do all we can to resolve your complaint on the same day.
    • If we do not manage to resolve the complaint within 5 working days we'll write to give you an update and let you know when you can expect a full response.
    • Once all the details of the complaint have been investigated, (we may call you for further details) we will issue a ‘final response’ to your complaint.

    The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) gives us a maximum number of days to issue a final response:

    • If your complaint relates to payment services or e-money (e.g. Direct Debit, Online Transaction) we aim to issue a final response within 15 business days after receiving your complaint. Should something outside of our control cause a delay, the FCA gives us a maximum of 35 business days.
    • For all other types of complaint the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) gives us eight weeks to issue a final response but we will aim to get your complaint resolved well before this deadline.
  • Halifax is a member of the Financial Ombudsman Service, which offers an independent review service. So, if you're still not happy with the agreement we have proposed, you can ask the Financial Ombudsman Service to look at your case for free.

     We can provide details of how to contact the Ombudsman:

    The Financial Ombudsman Service
    Exchange Tower
    London
    E14 9SR

    Telephone: 0800 023 4 567

    Email: complaint.info@financial-ombudsman.org.uk

    Website: www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk

    Please note: You may be able to submit a claim through the European Online Dispute Resolution Platform if you live outside the United Kingdom or if you prefer not to deal directly with the Financial Ombudsman Service.
