We are permitted 8 weeks from the date of your complaint to provide a resolution; however, we are committed to resolving your complaint in a much shorter timeframe as outlined herein:
If you have not already done so, please make us aware of the full nature of your concerns. We would appreciate if you would kindly take the time to put all the issues you wish us to address, in writing, so we can focus our investigation only on issues which matter to you.
We will record the nature of your complaint and will send you an email/letter acknowledging your complaint within 3 working days. In this letter, we shall confirm what will happen next.
We shall undertake our investigation within 21 working days of sending you the acknowledgment email/letter. If for any reason the investigation cannot be concluded in this timeframe, we shall write to you and propose a revised timescale. We will prioritise your complaint the best we can and act as swiftly as possible.
Once the investigation is complete, we shall invite you to a meeting to discuss the concerns you raised and hopefully resolve the complaint. This meeting will take place within 28 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter. If applicable, we shall write to you within 3 working days of the meeting to confirm our discussion and the solution agreed upon. If you do not want to or are unable to attend a meeting, we shall send you a detailed reply in writing, including any solution, within 21 working days of sending you the acknowledgement email/letter.
If you are satisfied with our response in either Step 3 or 4 above, the matter will be closed. However, if you consider the complaint to be unresolved, you should contact the firm again and we will arrange for Mr. Majad Habib, another Director, to review the decision. You will be required to provide reasons for your dissatisfaction, in writing. Thereafter we will write to you within 14 working days of receiving your written reasons, with confirmation of the firm’s final position, outlining the reasons and any final redress that maybe offered.
If you are unsatisfied with our response/resolution, you have the right to contact the Legal Ombudsman for further resolution. The Legal Ombudsman will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.
