Alternative Ways to File a Complaint Against Littlewoods
Suppose you've tried resolving your , but they haven't provided a satisfactory response; in such a case, you can seek other avenues to resolve your complaint. These options include:
1. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Schemes
ADR schemes refer to other ways customers and retailers/merchants resolve disputes out of court. There are two common forms of ADR:
- Mediation – The two conflicting parties (customer and Littlewoods) invite an independent party to help them achieve mutually acceptable settlement terms.
- Arbitration – This also involves an independent party who - instead of negotiating a mutually beneficial outcome - reviews the facts of the case and makes a decision that legally binds both parties.
An ombudsman is an independent agency or entity tasked with investigating complaints filed against companies and organisations. Depending on the complaint you have against Littlewoods or another company, you can choose from a range of ombudsman services.
For instance, if the online retailer owes you a refund, it would be best to complain to a financial ombudsman. If you want to sort out issues related to furniture or other purchases made on Littlewoods, it would be best to partner with a furniture ombudsman.
When to Complain to an Ombudsman
You should only take your case to an ombudsman if you've already filed the and they haven't resolved the matter following their complaints procedure.
You should only involve an ombudsman if the organisation has taken too long to resolve your case – usually eight weeks. Still, it would help to confirm the timeline based on the scheme you're using. It's also worth noting that an ombudsman won't investigate your complaint if you've already taken it to court.
3. Small Claims Court
Taking your complaint through litigation should be your final resort. In fact, the court requires you to first demonstrate that you've tried resolving the issue using other available channels before filing a lawsuit.
Your maximum compensation depends on the jurisdiction in which you file your claim. In England and Wales, you can expect a maximum settlement of £10,000. In Scotland and Ireland, the maximum compensatory amount is £5,000 and £3,000, respectively.
