How we handle your complaints

Simplified complaints

We will use this process if:

  • your complaint is about a simple matter- that we can look into and solve your complaint easily; and
  • you direct it to us (rather than directly to PRIMIS Mortgage Network) in the first instance.


We will investigate your complaint and aim to resolve it within three business days following the date of reciept. If you are happy to accept our proposed resolution, we will send you written confirmation of our investigation. If you cannot confirm acceptance by the end of the third working day (for example - because you are not happy with our proposed response or if you are not available to discuss it with us) then the case will be referred to PRIMIS Mortgage Network. It will then be handled in line with the Formal Complaints process outlined below. If your complaint is more complex or unlikely to be resolved quickly then we will usually refer it to PRIMIS straight away.

Formal Complaints

The formal complaints process will be used where:

  • We cant resolve your complaint to your satisfaction within 3 working days: or
  • Your complaint is likely to involve more complex assessment or investigations; or
  • You send your complaint directly to PRIMIS Mortgage Network rather than to us in the first instance; or
  • You ask us to deal with your complaint in this way rather than via a simplified process.

Upon reciept PRIMIS will acknowledge your complaint promptly and will investigate it fairly and impartially. They will write to you wihtin 8 weeks to confirm the outcome of their investigation. In the unlikely event that their investigation is not complete within 8 weeks of reciept of your complaint they will write to you to explain why and let you know when you can expect to hear from them. They will also provide details of how to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service if you are not satisfied with progress.

The Financial Ombudsman Service

If, following PRIMIS' investigation you are still not happy you have a statutory right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. 

It is a service free of charge to consumers and you may refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) within six months from the date that you recieved a final response to your complaint.

You can contact the service using the following details:

Telephone: 0800 023 4567
