Who can complain?
A complaint can be made by a Rosebery resident or a non-resident. All complaints will be assessed to determine whether an investigation will take place.
Can I get help to make a complaint?
If you’re unable to raise a complaint yourself, you can ask someone to do so on your behalf. This could be a friend, relative, or a professional from an organisation like the Citizens Advice service.
What are the various ways in which I can make a complaint?
All complaints must be made by emailing our Customer Experience team, in writing by post or by discussing it in person with a member of our staff.
How long will it take to receive a response to my complaint?
A complaint will be acknowledged by our Customer Experience team within two working days. This will usually be via the telephone and followed up with a letter. If your complaint is not resolved at the first point of contact, then it will move on to Stage 1.
- all Stage 1 complaints will be assigned to a member of the Customer Experience team to investigate and respond to within 10 working days.
- if it’s not possible to meet this deadline, you will be contacted and an extended response date will be agreed.
- once a formal response has been sent out, you’ll have 10 working days to contact us if you are still dissatisified with the response. The complaint will then move on to Stage 2.
- all Stage 2 complaints will be acknowledged by a members of the Customer Experience team within two working days.
- we’ll ask you to explain why you are unhappy with the first response and how you would like to see your complaint resolved.
- it will then be assigned to a relevant Head of Service for them to review and you’ll receive a response within 10 working days. Again, if it’s not possible to fully resolve the complaint within this time frame, you’ll be contacted and an extended response date will be agreed.
What happens if I'm still not satisfied with the outcome?
You may contact a designated person for help in resolving your complaint or wait eight weeks to refer it to the Housing Ombudsman. A designated person is:
- any MP in England
- any councillor from the local authority for their area
If you refer your complaint to a designated person, they will try to find a local solution to resolve it. They may decide to refer the complaint on to the Housing Ombudsman but only if you give permission first.
However, if you prefer to wait eight weeks, you can contact the ombudsman:
- Email – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Telephone – 0300 111 3000
- Post – Housing Ombudsman Service, 81 Aldwych, London WC2B 4HN
