Review of Complaint

What will happen next?

We will provide you with a written acknowledgement within five working days of receipt.

Your complaint will be reviewed by the department manager and your Personal Insolvency Practitioner who will provide you with a written response within a further fourteen days.

During these fourteen days the department manager and Personal Insolvency Practitioner will be ascertaining the background facts as quickly as possible.  They may need to contact you to seek additional information as required.

In the event that the Personal Insolvency Practitioner requires more time to fully investigate the complaint they will inform you in writing of a reasonable timetable for response along with reasons for the delay.

Once this has been completed they will provide a reply which will include conclusions of their investigations.  It will also include full and clear explanations of the reasons for the conclusions that have been made.  The Personal Insolvency Practitioner will also detail any legislation which is specific to your case to ensure that it is made clear why a particular procedure is required which may have been the cause for complaint in the first instance.

Should the investigations conclude that an error has been made the Personal Insolvency Practitioner and/or department manager will rectify the error promptly and offer an apology for the error.

Further Action

What if I am not satisfied with the initial response?

If you are not satisfied with the initial response to your complaint, you should write to the Senior Partner.

The Senior Partner will then conduct a review of the complaint with the assistance of another Personal Insolvency Practitioner of the company.

He will then investigate the complaint and review all documentation relating to the complaint provided by you and used by the Personal Insolvency Practitioner to formulate the response previously provided.

The Senior Partner will provide a response to your complaint within a further fourteen days with his findings.
