We want to know when you are unhappy with the service you receive from us. We investigate all complaints according to the Complaints Handling Procedure produced by the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman. This means we have a strict timescale in which we have to resolve your complaint.
Stage 1 Complaints
In the last quarter you raised 34 Stage 1 complaints (those handled at the frontline within 5 working days). This is less than the number of Stage 1 complaints raised in the previous quarter. We upheld 10 of the complaints. We responded to 21 of the 34 Stage 1 complaints within the timescale. This quarter we responded to 70% within the timescale compared to 77% last quarter.
Stage 2 Complaints
In the same period you raised 4 Stage 2 complaints (those complaints assessed by a member of our Senior Management Team and resolved within 20 working days). We did not uphold any of the complaints and responded to 1 of them within time.
Some quotes from our customer feedback:
- As remarked in a previous complaint, all new tenants should, at interview, be warned of the penalties for anti-social behaviour, or not complying with conditions of the tenancy agreement.
- Resolving such complaints should be dependant upon the degree of anti-social behaviour, e.g. criminal damage or violence towards other tenants/visitors and should be actioned the next working day.
- The complaint was handled in a prefessional manner in a reasonable amount of time.
