As a member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), we aim to provide the highest standard of service to all landlords and tenants, in line with their Code of Practice. One of the requirements of our membership of ARLA, is that we have a process for assessing complaints about our service.
All branch staff will deal with the normal day to day problems on a one to one basis, but once a formal complaint as such has been raised, i.e. “I am not satisfied with the standard of your work / conduct / behaviour etc. and I wish to make a formal complaint”, then at that stage you will be requested to put your complaint in writing, setting out your concerns by reference to any related documents, terms of business, tenancy agreement, inventory etc., and send it to:
Ann McMaster, Head of Lettings, Ross & Liddell Ltd, 89 Byres Road, Glasgow, G11 5HN.
This complaint letter will be acknowledged promptly, within three working days, an investigation will be instigated, with a formal written outcome communicated within fifteen working days. You will be invited to make any comments that you may have in relation to this response.
Subsequently, if you remain dissatisfied with the way we have handled your complaint, please write to:
Alec Cassidy (FCCA), Director, Ross & Liddell Ltd, 60 St Enoch Square, Glasgow, G1 4AW.
Finally, having exhausted our in-house procedures, if you are still not satisfied with our response, you may refer your complaint to:
The Housing ans Property Chamber First-Tier Tribunal for Scotland
If your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction, having been processed to a conclusion through our complaints procedure, referring specifically to property letting, you may lodge a complaint in writing with the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland Housing and Property Chamber as provided by the Scottish Government.
