Complaints Procedure

Last updated 18th November, 2022

 We are committed to providing a professional service to all our clients and customers. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve our standards. 

If you have a complaint, please put it in writing, including as much detail as possible. We will then respond in line with the timeframes set out below (if you feel we have not sought to address your complaints within eight weeks, you may be able to refer your complaint to the Property Ombudsman to consider without our final viewpoint on the matter). 

 

Stage One

If you feel, after speaking with the Manager of the Branch / Department, that your complaint has not been resolved or should they have been directly involved in the matter pertaining to your complaint, you are invited to make a formal complaint in a written summary by e-mail to hello@northpropertygroup.co.uk or by letter to North Property Group, One Brewery Wharf, Leeds, LS10 1GX. Your complaint will be acknowledged within 3 working days of being received. The relevant Area Manager will make contact with you to discuss the matter further prior to launching a full investigation. Upon completion of that investigation, you will be advised of the outcome in writing and within 15 working days of receipt of the written complaint. 

Stage Two

If, after receiving the response in Stage One, you feel that your complaint remains unresolved you may refer the matter to the Head of Operations who will pick the email up on hello@northpropertygroup.co.uk – the Head of Operations will personally conduct a separate review of your complaint. You will receive an acknowledgement within 3 working days and a final viewpoint letter within 15 working days of your complaint being received. 

Stage Three

Following Stage Two, should the matter still not be resolved to your satisfaction you can then refer it to the TPO. The steps outlined above must be completed in full before proceeding through this route. Please note that any referral must be undertaken within 12 months of receipt of your written complaint.

A formal written outcome of our investigation will be sent to you within 15 working days of sending the acknowledgement letter. 
  • If, at this stage, you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for a separate review to take place by a senior member of staff.
