The RICS Rules require us to have a complaint handling procedure (Rule 7). The address mechanism (see below) is free to the consumer.
Initially if you have a complaint about the service, you have received then you should discuss this with the relevant member of staff or if you prefer with their line manager. Most complaints can be dealt with at this stage and any appropriate action taken immediately. In the unlikely event that we are not able to resolve the matter then your complaint may be escalated my moving to stage 2.
If you are dissatisfied with the service provided by the firm and we have been unable to resolve it at stage 1 you should contact the Managing Director Simon Buckley in writing with details of your complaint.
