Making a complaint - Residential Sales

Your Move is a founder 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 we have the following complaints process in place.

The aim of this process is to resolve all customer issues or concerns as quickly as possible. In the majority of cases we hope that any issues can be resolved quickly and amicably to customers' satisfaction at branch level.

Stage One – Branch Manager

Complaints should, in the first instance, be directed to the Manager of the estate agency branch you have been dealing with. They will endeavour to liaise with you quickly and resolve your complaint immediately, no later than 5 working days from first notification.

Stage Two – Customer Relations Department

If, after you have dealt with the local branch manager, you remain dissatisfied you may address your concerns, in writing, to the Customer Relations Department. Once received your letter will be acknowledged within 3 working days and a response will be issued within 15 working days of receipt of your complaint.

The address to write to is:

Customer Relations Department
Newcastle House
Albany Court
Newcastle Business Park
Newcastle upon Tyne
Or email:

Stage Three – The Property Ombudsman

If you still remain dissatisfied with the outcome of your complaint after dealing with the local branch and the Customer Relations Department, and once you have received a Final Viewpoint letter from the Customer Relations Department, you may approach the Property Ombudsman.

Details of how to contact the Property Ombudsman will be contained within the Final Viewpoint letter sent as the final response to your complaint. Information can also be found online at

  • You must make your complaint to the Property Ombudsman within 12 months of the date of our Final Viewpoint letter.
  • The Property Ombudsman will not consider your complaint until our internal complaints procedure has been exhausted and you have received our Final Viewpoint letter.
  • The Property Ombudsman recommends paying any outstanding fees on a "without prejudice" basis to avoid late-payment charges and/or further action.
