    Servicing Team – you can contact them on their direct phone number or by post

    Local Branch – you can visit your local branch and speak to a member of staff

    Please do not include any confidential information in any emails you send to us. If you need to refer to specific account details, call or write to us instead. We usually reply to your email address but there may be times when we need to get in touch by post, for example when we need to refer to confidential information or send you important documents.

  • Once you've contacted us we'll do our best to resolve any complaint promptly and efficiently. If we need more time to complete our investigations, we will:

    • Let you know who will be looking after your complaint
    • Provide you with a reference number
    • Keep you regularly updated with our progress.

    If for any reason you are not happy with our response, please let the person or department who handled your complaint know, so that we have the opportunity to see if there is anything further we can do.

    Once we’re satisfied we’ve considered all aspects of your complaint, we will contact you with our response.

  • If we do not resolve your complaint internally to your satisfaction, you may be able to ask the Financial Ombudsman Service to review your complaint. The Financial Ombudsman Service is an organisation set up by law to give consumers a free and independent service for resolving disputes with financial firms.
