MILL BAY HOMES LIMITED
CUSTOMER CONCERNS AND COMPLAINTS POLICY
Mill Bay homes Ltd is committed to dealing effectively with any concerns and complaints you may have about our service or the standard of your new home.
If you are approaching us about a concern or complaint for the first time, then this policy doesn’t apply, you should give us a chance to respond to you.
If you make an approach and then are not happy with the response, you will be able to make your concerns known as we describe below.
To register a complaint contact our sales/customer service team. We will formally acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days and aim to resolve concerns as quickly as possible. We expect to deal with the vast majority of complaints within 20 working days. If your complaint is more complex we will keep you informed of the expected timescales required to reach a resolution.
If you are not satisfied with our response/resolution you can refer your complaint to the Operations Manager at our head office, whose address can be found on our website www.millbayhomes.co.uk. Your complaint will be formally acknowledged within 5 working days of receipt and we will notify you of our response within 20 working days of receipt of your complaint.
If Mill Bay Homes did not succeed in resolving your complaint you may refer your complaint for independent resolution under the Consumer Code for Homebuilders. You should contact the home warranty provider within three months of the date of our final response to the original complaint. The home warranty body will either deal with the complaint under the terms of the warranty or provide the home buyer with an application form and a set of the adjudication rules so that the complaint can be referred to the independent dispute resolution service. Please note that using this service does affect your legal rights. A copy of the Consumer Code for homebuilders and further information is available at www.consumercodeforhomebuilders.com
You may alternatively complain to the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales. The Ombudsman is independent and can look into your complaint if you believe that you personally, or the person on whose behalf you are complaining:
- Have been treated unfairly or received a bad service through some failure on the part of the body providing it
- Have been disadvantaged personally by a service failure or have been treated unfairly
You can contact the Ombudsman by:
- Phone: 0845 601 0987
- E-mail: email@example.com
- The website: www.ombudsman-wales.org.uk
- Writing to: Public Services Ombudsman for Wales, 1 Ffordd Yr Hen Gae, Pencoed, CF35 5LJ
Please note that the areas for jurisdiction for the Ombudsman are limited.
