Alternative Ways to File a Complaint Against Home Group
If you haven't had success in your complaint against Home Group, or if you want to complain more, there are a few other avenues you can consider. Not all of these will be applicable to every situation, but it's important to be aware that they exist so you can use them if needed.
1. Use Alternative Dispute Resolution Schemes to File Your Home Group Complaint
Alternative dispute resolution (or ADR) schemes are a method of getting a complaint resolved out of court. ADR schemes can use mediators or arbitrators, but in either case, they are an excellent way to get concrete results from your complaint. For more information on alternative dispute resolution, see the Department for Business Innovation & Skills' website.
2. File a Home Group Complaint with Your Ombudsman
An ombudsman is an independent third party mediator who helps to handle complaints against government agencies and companies.
- In England, Home Group is registered with the Housing Ombudsman Service.
- In Scotland, Home Group works with the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO).
For more information on filing a complaint with an ombudsman, see Home Group's guidelines.
3. Sue Home Group in Small Claims Court
This is the most extreme method of resolving your Home Group complaint, and it is one that should not be taken lightly. However, if you have suffered financial losses due to Home Group's actions or lack of action, you may be able to sue them in small claims court. Note that in England and Wales, the maximum amount of money you can request in small claims court is £10,000. The process of filing your claim will vary based on the specific court you file in.
