Your Move Complaints Process

Making a complaint - Residential Sales (Network branches only)

Your Move is a member of The Property Ombudsman Scheme (TPOS) and we aim to provide the highest standards of service to all our customers. To ensure that your interests are safeguarded and to make sure we put mistakes right, we have the following complaints process.

The aim of this process is to resolve all customer issues or concerns as quickly as possible. In the majority of cases issues can be resolved quickly and amicably to customers' satisfaction by our branch colleagues.

Stage One – Branch Manager

Complaints should, in the first instance, be directed to the Manager of the branch you have been dealing with. They will acknowledge your complaint in writing, within 3 working days of receipt, in line with this procedure and then endeavour to liaise with you to resolve your complaint immediately, but no later than 15 working days from letter of acknowledgement.

Stage Two – Customer Relations Department

If, after you have dealt with the local Manager, you remain dissatisfied, you can request a review of your complaint, in writing, by the Customer Relations Department. Once received your complaint will be reviewed and we will send you a final viewpoint response in writing within 15 working days from receipt of your request for a review. If longer is required you will be notified in writing with an explanation and indication of the timescale.
