Here at HomeServe we always aim to provide our customers with the best possible service, but unfortunately sometimes things can go wrong.
Letting us know when you're unhappy with your experience gives us the opportunity to put things right and make sure that we continue to improve to deliver the best possible service in the future.
The below summarises the five steps of our complaints handling process:
We'll write to you to acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days of receiving it.
We understand how important it is that we resolve this quickly for you, but to ensure we reach a fair outcome, we'll need to carry out a thorough investigation, which can take time. One of our trained Customer Service Advisers will investigate your complaint.
They'll assess the details thoroughly, fairly and impartially in order to reach a decision. To help with their investigations they may need to contact you to ask for additional information.
Our aim is to reach a conclusion within 4 weeks of receiving your complaint, but this will depend on the complexity of your case. If we've not resolved your complaint by this time we'll ensure you're kept updated on the progress of our investigation.
We will always inform you of our decision in a final response letter. This letter will detail all of our findings and the rationale behind our decision. We'll always attempt to inform you of our decision over the phone if possible too.
In the event that your complaint hasn't been resolved within 8 weeks from the date of receipt, we'll provide you with a written update on the progress of our investigation, explaining why we're not yet in a position to provide you with our final response.
At this point we'll also let you know that you have the option to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. We'll send you a booklet which contains further details on the service that they provide.
If 8 weeks have passed since you initially raised your complaint with us, or you're not happy with our final response, you may refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
The Financial Ombudsman Service was set up by law to give most consumers a free, independent service for resolving disputes with financial firms.
Please note that if you've got a complaint you should always contact us first. The Ombudsman will only consider your case once you've attempted to resolve it directly with us first.
You've got a period of 6 months to refer your complaint to the Ombudsman. This starts from the date of the final response letter that we send to you.
Here are the contact details of the Financial Ombudsman Service:
If you would like to make a complaint, please visit our contact us page to find the relevant contact details.
Of course. If you have a HomeServe policy/ plan and need us to speak to someone on your behalf, get in touch with our Live Chat team - they'll be happy to help.
