This is the information hub for social housing landlords seeking our assistance.
Here you can learn about our complaints process, best practice on effective complaint handling, read helpful case studies, as well as sign up to workshops and take part in online learning.
Our dispute resolution process
An enquiry is a request for information, assistance or advice where no formal complaint has been made to the landlord. We may provide information about our service, signpost to other organisations as appropriate or give advice on making a complaint.
Once a complaint has been made to a member landlord we support resolution between the complainant and landlord. We give them the tools to resolve complaints themselves within the landlord’s procedure.
Our formal remit
When a complaint has completed the landlord’s complaints procedure it moves into our formal remit. (Note that the designated person part of the process changed with effect from 1 October 2022 - read more.)
Assessment and jurisdiction
We assess whether the complaint is within our jurisdiction, and how we will handle the case.
We may offer mediation working with complainants and landlords to try to agree positive solutions within a time limited procedure.
If a complaint cannot be resolved earlier then it will go forward for formal investigation.
