Making a Complaint


Information for Customers

Bricks & Mortar are members of The Property Ombudsman (TPOS) and Safeagent and as such aims to provide the highest standards of service to all our customers. To ensure that your interests are safeguarded, we have a Complaints Process in place. The aim of this process is to resolve any issues or concerns as quickly as possible, although in the majority of cases we hope that matters such as these are resolved at branch level.

Stage One - Speak to your Property Consultant, Property Manager or Account Handler

All complaints should, in the first instance, be directed verbally to the individual that you recognise as your point of contact within Bricks & Mortar i.e. your Property Consultant, Property Manager or Account Handler. He or she will endeavour to resolve your complaint immediately.

If you feel that this cannot be resolved over the phone, you will need to submit your complaint in writing to the relevant senior/manager of the department that your enquiry relates to. The relevant email address will be provided to you and you should receive a reply no later than five working days of the first notification.


Stage Two - Write to the Heads of Department

If you remain dissatisfied, you may then further your complaint to the head of each department and the email address will be provided to you.  

Your complaint will be acknowledged within three working days of receipt and an investigation undertaken. A formal written outcome of the investigation will be sent to you within 15 working days.

Stage Three - Write to the Managing Director of Bricks & Mortar

If you remain dissatisfied, you may address your concerns in writing to the Managing Director. Your letter will be acknowledged within three working days of receipt and an investigation undertaken. Following the Managing Director’s investigation, a formal written outcome and statement will be sent to you within 15 working days and contain the final view of the company and the address to send this to is as follows;
