What to do if we can't reach an agreement

If you are not satisfied with our response, or if we’ve been unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks (15 calendar days for payment related complaints), you can refer the matter to them.

You can contact them in writing at Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London, E14 9SR, by telephone on 0800 023 4567 and via email at complaint.info@financial-ombudsman.org.uk.
