Alternative Ways to File a Complaint Against Clydesdale Bank

What happens if you go through all the steps to file a complaint with Clydesdale Bank, but you aren't getting any results? If this is the case, you don't have to give up or continue to contact Clydesdale Bank if you aren't getting an answer. There are other avenues you can use.

  1. ADR Schemes

ADR stands for Alternate Dispute Resolution. This is a method to have your voice heard without the situation escalating until you end up in court. You can work with either a mediator, who helps you agree with Clydesdale Bank or arbitration, which is a third party who makes a binding decision after reviewing all the facts.

  1. Ombudsman

An Ombudsman is someone who checks out complaints. They aren't someone you hire, so this helps them be impartial in their decision-making. To contact an Ombudsman, you need to have at least attempted to contact Clydesdale Bank on your own. In other words, you don't go straight to the Ombudsman before you have given Clydesdale Bank a chance to act.

An Ombudsman is more inclined to take a look at your case when:

  • You've gone through the complaint process, and aren't seeing any results.
  • You've contacted them, but it's been 8 weeks or longer with no response back.

An Ombudsman won't take your case if:

  • It's been a long time since you contacted Clydesdale Bank to file the initial complaint.
  • You've taken steps to take the case to court.

Financial Ombudsman Service is the company you'll contact if you feel like an Ombudsman is right for your situation.

  1. Small Claims Court

While going to court is not the first choice for many people, it may be unavoidable. If this is the case, then you can petition the Small Claims Court for amounts up to £10,000.
