Chamberlains In House Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure

Chamberlains prides itself on the level of its customer service. However, occasionally things do go wrong, and you may need to complain. If you feel you would like to make a complaint please see our complaints procedure below.

Information for Customers

Chamberlains is a member of The Property Ombudsman (TPOS) and as such aims to provide the highest standards of service to all our customers. To ensure that your interests are safeguarded, we have a Complaints Process in place. The aim of this process is to resolve any issues or concerns as quickly as possible, although in the majority of cases we hope that matters such as these are resolved at branch level. The whole process should take no longer than 8 weeks.

We are committed to providing a professional service to all our clients and customers. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve our standards.

If you have a complaint, please put it in writing, including as much detail as possible. We will then respond in line with the timeframes set out below (if you feel we have not sought to address your complaints within eight weeks, you may be able to refer your complaint to the Property Ombudsman to consider without our final viewpoint on the matter).

What will happen next?

We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within three working days of receiving it, enclosing a copy of this procedure.

We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally be dealt with by the office manager who will review your file and speak to the member of staff who dealt with you. A formal written outcome of our investigation will be sent to you within fifteen working days of sending the acknowledgement letter.

If, at this stage, you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and will arrange for a separate review to take place by a senior member of staff.

We will write to you within fifteen working days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final viewpoint on the matter.

If you are still not satisfied after the last stage of the in-house complaint procedure (or more than 8 weeks has elapsed since the complaint was first made) you can request an independent review from The Property Ombudsman without charge.
