Complaints Procedure

Our aim is to provide the best possible service for our customers but we realise we don’t always get it right and if this happens we want to know about it.

Our complaints procedure is in place to help you resolve difficulties and to help us improve our service. In most cases problems can be resolved informally by contacting one of our supervisors.

If you are still not satisfied then we can deal with your complaint, under our 3 stage complaints procedure.

3 Stages

1. A senior manager who has not been involved in the problem will take an independent and objective look at the background to the case and will aim to send you a reply within 10 working days.

2. If you are not happy with the answer you get, or the problem you are concerned about persists, you can write to the Managing Director of Ocean Housing who will look at the case again and get back to you within 10 working days.

3. If we have still not been able to solve the problem you can ask for it to be examined by Ocean’s Group Chief Executive who will respond within 10 working days of your request being received.

If at this stage you are still unhappy you have the right to refer your complaint to a Designated Person or wait 8 weeks to make a formal complaint to the Independent Housing Ombudsman
