Ombudsman Services – Property
The Ombudsman Services – Property is fully independent and a member of The Ombudsman Association. Their service has been approved by the Office of Fair trading (OFT) as an estate agent redress scheme. Their work meets the requirements of the Consumers, Estate Agents and Redress Act, 2007. This means that domestic customers of estate agents have the right to take certain complaints to the ombudsman if the firm or company fails to resolve the problem.
They are also appointed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) to handle complaints about their members.
Property customers are not charged for using the service. Their role is to investigate complaints fairly by listening to both sides of the story and looking at the facts. They will decide what action, if any, should be taken when you and a property company can’t agree.
