Complaints Procedure

Please read below our complaints procedure.

At Barrows & Forrester Property Group we always aim to provide the best possible professional service and constantly value the opinions of our clients and customers. If you feel that we have fallen short of this standard and you wish to complain in line with The Property Redress Scheme our complaint procedure is outlined below: We ask that you first contact the person who has been your contact and explain that you are dissatisfied with an aspect of the service you have received. If the matter is unable to be resolved, please follow the following procedure:

  1. In the first instance you should write to the Manager/Director of the office you have had dealing with, giving full details of your complaint. Once they have received your complaint, they will acknowledge receipt within 3 working days. An investigation will then be undertaken, and you will receive a response to your complaint within 15 working days.
  2. If you are not satisfied with the response given by the Manager/Director, or the matter remains unresolved, you can escalate your complaint to the Managing Director for our company final viewpoint. You can email them via
    jf@barrowsandforrester.co.uk or write to them at the following address:

If we are unable to resolve the matter within the 15 working days as stated above, we will provide you with reasons why we could not meet this time frame and provide you with an estimate of when a full response will be received. After our final written response, we may deem the complaint closed. If we deem the matter closed, then we reserve the right not to enter into any further correspondence. We are members of the Property Redress Scheme. If you remain unhappy with the response received from us and have exhausted our complaints procedure, you can contact The Property Ombudsman (TPO) to ask them to investigate your complaint.

  • Made an official complaint to us, in writing.
  • You have waited 8 weeks for your complaint to have been resolved by us in writing.
