Compliments and Complaints
We really want you to tell us what you think, good or bad, as without your feedback it can be difficult for us to make sure we're continually improving our services. Please get in touch and let us know.

Making a complaint
We know there are times that we may not get things quite right and this is why we have a complaints process in place for when this happens.
Complaints give us an insight into problems and concerns and we treat them seriously. We want to learn from the feedback they provide to improve the way we do things so we can provide the best service possible for our customers.
What is a complaint?
- Where we have failed to provide a service, or there’s been a delay in providing one.
- Where we have failed to follow our policies and procedures, or have been unfair or inconsistent in applying them.
- Where we have failed to keep a customer informed through lack of or insufficient information.
- Where there has been inappropriate behaviour or attitude from our staff.
- If a customer is in any way unhappy about the way we’ve delivered a service.
There may be occasions where you are not satisfied with our service, however we will treat your request as an enquiry. This would happen if:
- A customer contacts us to ask us something about their home or tenancy, for example, information about their rent account. This is not a complaint but if we fail to provide this information then this could become a complaint.
- A customer contacts us to ask us to do something to their home or tenancy, for example, a repair. Although the customer feels that something has gone wrong, this is not a complaint as we have not been given the opportunity to put it right however, if we fail to carry out the repair or put the matter right this may become a complaint.
Please note that we do not consider Antisocial Behaviour (ASB) issues as complaints, unless the complaint is about the way we have handled the case. We have a dedicated section all about Antisocial Behaviour with some useful information, as well as our ASB Toolkit:

If so, you can access their Tenant's Champion service. Whether you're a tenant or leaseholder who rent or lease your home from a Housing Association in the borough they can offer you help and support if you need to complain.
Sometimes things don’t get resolved to your satisfaction then the next step is to contact your Councillor. However, some issues may be more complex, or be something that keeps occurring, or may affect many people - and it is here that the Tenants’ Champion can help.
This service is only available to customers living in the London Borough of Richmond
