What to do if we can't reach an agreement

The Financial Ombudsman Service is an independent organisation, which helps to resolve complaints that customers and financial institutions haven’t been able to resolve themselves.

If we’ve been unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks, or you are not satisfied with our response, 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
