Completing the Complaints Form

If you have read the guidance and need to refer your complaint to the Ombudsman, you will need to complete and sign the TPO complaints form.

Why the Complaints Form is so important?

If you have already sent us documents, you may be wondering why we have asked you to complete the TPO Complaints Form.

The complaints form is a compulsory part of the complaints process. It is not the role of TPO to assume or interpret issues a consumer may wish the Ombudsman to consider.

A signed complaints form also gives us permission to obtain the agent's file which we use to review your complaint.

Your form will be returned to you if all sections are not completed.

Submitting your complaints form to TPO

Communicating with us

  • We will always communicate with you via email. If you would prefer us to communicate with you by post, please let us know.
  • If you have a particular need in the way in which we communicate, please let us know and we will do our best to help, depending on your needs.
  • If you require a copy of this form in a different format, e.g. braille, large print or another language, please tell us.
  • Please note that the average timescale for dealing with a complaint - from the point we have all the information (from both parties) to investigate, to the point a proposed decision is made - is around 90 days.  This timescale may vary depending on the complexity of the dispute, although it is often the case that a resolution can be provided in a shorter period.

Supporting Evidence

A list of documentation which is commonly required to review cases is listed here.

If you are sending by post, we can only accept copies of any documents and are unable to send back originals.

If someone else is complaining on your behalf please include their name and signatures as well as your own.
