Complaints process

What happens next?

We want to resolve your issue as quickly as possible and where appropriate we will work with you to provide a response or to put it right first time.  

All complaints and concerns are treat in confidence. We will acknowledge your request within five working days and will set out our understanding of the complaint and the outcome you are seeking.

If we are unable to resolve your issue informally, it will go into the following formal two-stage procedure: 


Stage 1: Investigation

At the investigation stage, we will contact you to discuss your complaint and get a clear understanding of how you would like us to put things right.
Once we understand this, we will complete investigations internally and will then contact you with our response including any actions within 10 working days.

If after the investigation stage you are still unhappy, you can ask for your complaint to be reviewed. Your request should be made within 20 working days of the investigation response being sent.

Stage 2: Review

At this stage, an appeal hearing will be arranged with two senior managers. One senior manager from outside the complaint service area and one from within the complaint service area.  The role of the panel is to review the response provided at the investigation stage and determine whether it is reasonable. You will receive a written reply following the panel within 20 working days.

Housing Ombudsman Self-Assessment


The Housing Ombudsman has published a new Complaint Handling Code, setting out good practice that will allow landlords to respond to complaints effectively and fairly. 

The Code will act as a guide for residents setting out what they can and should expect from their landlord when they complain.  

The Housing Ombudsman Scheme can be found here

Halton Housing is required to self-assess against the Code and publish the results.  You can download your copy of the Halton Housing Ombudsman Self-Assessment here 

Complaints Performance Report


It is important that we understand how are performing when it comes to customer complaints.

The number of complaints that we receive is a good indicator of how well our services are performing from a customer’s point of view. They provide us with opportunities to understand what has gone wrong and to take action quickly to put things right and to learn from complaints to improve our services in the future.

Learning from complaints


We know sometimes things go wrong and we don't always get it right. We want to learn from complaints we receive so we can continually improve.
