Complaints Handling Procedure

The objective of this complaints handling procedure is to ensure that maximum opportunity is given for satisfactory resolution of any complaints that may arise from clients of the firm or from anybody to whom the firm owes an established duty of care.  This procedure accords with the requirements of regulation 2.7 of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

In the event of any complaint arising we normally expect in the first instance for such complaint to come to the fee earner/Departmental Head involved.  Upon receipt of any such complaint, whether verbal or in writing, the complainant will be sent a copy of this complaints procedure.

The complaint will initially be dealt with by Richard Beaumont at 21 Ironmonger Lane, London, EC2V 8EY 4PH - Tel: 020 7367 5533 Fax: 020 7367 5535.
 
NB. For any complaint involving work undertaken by, or supervised by Mr Beaumont, the complaint will be handled by another Member of the firm.

If a complaint is lodged orally, then the Member handling the complaint (as above) will ask that it be confirmed in writing with an explanation as to the circumstances surrounding the complaint.

We will acknowledge receipt of the complaint in writing within 7 days of receipt of the written summary of complaint. 

The written summary of complaint will be shown to the Departmental Head involved with a request for written comments concerning the complaint.  Such written comments from the Departmental Head will be shown to the complainant and this process will be undertaken with two weeks of receipt of the written complaint. 

The complainant will be asked if there are any other comments that he/she wishes to make to the person dealing with the complaint. 

The Member dealing with the complaint will, as soon as reasonably possible, but in any event within 28 days of receiving the complaint, thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the complaint including any comments made by the complainant and Head of Department, and will write to the complainant in order to inform on the outcome of the investigation that has been made and to let the complainant know what action has been taken or will be taken.  If the complainant is happy with the outcome of the investigation, the matter will conclude.

If the complainant is dissatisfied with the handling of the complaint or the outcome thereof, the firm will agree to enter into a mediation process though CEDR Solve, or alternatively through the RICS Dispute Resolution Service.
