Our complaints procedure provides an opportunity for any grievances to be handled internally.
1. If a customer/tenant believes they have a grievance, they need to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 months of the incident.
The e-mail needs to include the following details for it to be processed as a formal complaint:
* The customer’s/ tenant's name and property address the complaint relates to
* The subject line needs to state "FORMAL COMPLAINT" for it to be processed as such
* name and contact details of anyone helping the customer with the complaint
* the factual details of the customer’s/tenant's complaint
* why the customer/tenant thinks their previous complaint was not resolved to their satisfaction
* copies of any relevant documents
2. Receipt of the email will be acknowledged within 3 working days.
3. The complaint will be investigated and a written reply will be sent within 10 working days of the initial acknowledgement.
4. If Student Haus is unable to resolve the matter within the 10 working days as stated above, Student Haus will provide reasons why Student Haus could not meet this time frame and provide an estimate of when a full response will be received
5. If the customer/tenant is not satisfied with the outcome of our initial investigation, Student Haus will offer a further opportunity to have the grievance reviewed.
