Gilson Bailey, are members of The Property Ombudsman and we aim to provide the highest standards of service to all our customers. To ensure that your interests are safeguarded, a complaints procedure has been introduced. This provides for the matter to be dealt with internally by senior members of our teams and in the event that we are not able to deal with the issue to our mutual satisfaction, by reference to The Property Ombudsman.
If you believe you have a complaint, please write in the first instance to:
Your complaint will be acknowledged within 24 hours but no longer than 3 working days, investigated thoroughly in accordance with established in-house procedures and a formal reply will be sent to you within 15 working days of receipt of your complaint.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome or our initial investigation, you are provided with a further opportunity to have the complaint reviewed by one of the Directors and in this instance please direct your correspondence to Donna Barrett-Smith MNAEA at the Norwich office address.
We will write to you within 15 working days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final viewpoint on the matter.
In the event that the final review as detailed above still fails to satisfy your complaint, then you are at liberty to have the matter referred to The Property Ombudsman. We will submit our file to the Ombudsman on request. You are also entitled to have your complaint referred to the Ombudsman should we fail to deal with matters promptly or do not comply with our in-house complaints procedure within 8 weeks from the date we receive your written notification.
