Alternative Options for Complaints Against Lambeth Council

Sometimes you don't get the result you're looking for when you make a complaint directly to the Lambeth Council, whether that be in person, by phone or electronic means, or through their complaint process. When that happens, it's time to search out alternate options to bring light to your issue.

There are a few options you can consider, including:

1. Alternate Dispute Resolutions

The UK government offers alternate dispute options for consumers when they suspect that they are being cheated, scammed, or abused and their complaints are unobserved. The object is to keep people and business out of the courtroom and prevent overworked and bogged down courts.

Common forms of ADR include:

  • Mediation
  • Arbitration

In mediation, an independent third party assists the disagreeing parties to come to an outcome that's acceptable to them both. During an arbitration, an independent third party ponders both side of the problem and the facts available and provides a binding decision to one or both parties to settle the issue.

2. Ombudsman

An ombudsman is someone appointed in an official capacity to investigate consumer and citizen complaints against businesses, entities, and public authorities in the UK. They are impartial individuals with no predetermined side. You can only take your gripe to an ombudsman if you have already tried to complain to the Lambeth Council and received no or unsatisfactory results but have not begun any court proceedings. For complaints about Lambeth Council, you'll need to speak to a public sector ombudsman.

3. Small Claims Court

Taking your complaint to small claims court should be a last resort or used for only the most heinous grievances. Where you are located in the country determines the claim value limit you are entitled to in small claims court. The top limit in the UK is £10,000.
