Complaints Procedure

We aim to provide the best possible service. However, if at any stage you become unhappy or dissatisfied with our service then you should inform us immediately so that we can rectify the problem.

Please follow these steps:

  1. It may be productive to contact the person dealing with your matter to discuss any concerns. This can be done in writing, in which case please send a letter or email to the person dealing with your matter.
  2. If the person dealing with your matter is not able to rectify your concerns to your satisfaction or if you find it difficult to discuss a complaint with them directly, please write to our Complaints Manager, Mr Fasar Mahmood. His details are:
    1. Fasar Mahmood –
    2. Independence House, Holly Bank Road, Huddersfield, HD3 3HN

If you wish to meet Mr Mahmood in person to discuss your complaint please inform us as soon as you can.

What we will do:

Our Complaints Manager will deal with your complaint as quickly as possible and make every effort to respond to any concerns raised. This will not impact how your matter is handled.

We aim to acknowledge any complaint within three working days.

We aim to investigate and fully respond to a complaint within 21 days, unless it is complex and requires more time, in which case we will notify you of any further time required. We may also contact you to provide us with further information if necessary.
