Our complaints handling policy and process

A complaint refers to any expression of dissatisfaction made to us that relates to our services where a response or resolution is explicitly or implicitly expected. We’ll handle any complaints promptly and fairly and provide you with information on avenues for resolving issues if we’re not able to reach an agreement with you. If you call and our staff member isn’t able to resolve your complaint in the first instance, they’ll try and refer you to someone who can.

For disputes or complaints received via phone, our online disputes form below, or via email, we’ll endeavour to get back to you within five working days. For complaints received in writing, we’ll aim to respond within 10 business days.

Where a complaint cannot be resolved within 30 business days, you can request that the matter be referred to a member of our Internal Dispute Resolution Team who will treat your complaint as a dispute and endeavour to resolve it as timely and effectively as possible.
