Residential Sales – Making a Complaint

Information for customers

Kings is a member of The Property Ombudsman Scheme (TPOS) and as such aims to provide the highest standards of service to all our customers.  To ensure that your interests are safeguarded, we have a complaints process in place.  The aim of this process is to resolve any issues or concerns as quickly as possible, although in the majority of cases we hope that matters such as these are resolved at branch level.

Stage One – Branch Manager

All complaints should, in the first instance, be directed verbally to the manager of the Kings office you have been dealing with. He or she will endeavour to resolve your complaint immediately and no later than five working days of the first notification.

Stage Two – Senior Director

If you remain dissatisfied, you may then further your complaint, which must be in writing, to the Senior Director responsible for the Branch in question.  You must write to them within one month of receiving the Branch response.  The Branch Manager can supply you with the details of the appropriate person.  They will acknowledge your complaint within three working days of receipt of your letter and provide you with a full written response within 15 working days.

Stage Three – The Managing Director

If you remain dissatisfied, you may address your concerns to the Managing Director within one month of the response from the Senior Director.  Your letter will be acknowledged within three working days of receipt and an investigation undertaken. Following the Managing Directors investigation a formal written outcome and statement will be sent to you within 15 working days and contain the final view of the company.  This will include any offer made.
