Alternative Ways to File a Complaint Against Redrow

Under the consumer code for homebuilders, companies like Redrow must have an internal system to deal with complaints. Still, if you are unhappy with the outcome as a homebuyer, you can contact the Home warranty board no later than a year after Redrow's final response. The warranty body will resolve the complaint under the terms of the warranty or offer you an application form and a raft of adjudication rules so that you can take up the matter with the independent resolution scheme.

Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution

The centre for effective dispute resolution runs the independent dispute resolution scheme, which can resolve your complaint through adjudication. You can only seek their redress if eight weeks have elapsed since raising the issue with Redrow and no later than a year after Redrow's final response.

Below are the steps involved in dispute resolution

  1. Complete an application form and send it to the independent dispute resolution scheme accompanied by relevant evidence, including the codes you believe were breached by the housebuilder.
  2. The scheme will ask Redrow to respond to your complaint. The homebuilder may opt to remedy the losses by offering an early settlement
  3. If they choose not to, they will submit a response to your complaint. You have the option of responding to the complaint, but you cannot add new complaints.
  4. The adjudicator will then consider both sides of the case and determine whether you suffered financial loss due to Redrow's breach of the consumer code.
  5. You will then receive the adjudicator's determination. If they find Redrow liable, they may issue a performance award that entails repairs to your home, a financial award in monetary compensation, or a combination of the two.
  6. If you accept the financial award, the adjudicator will write to Redrow upon which they are expected to provide the reward within 20 days.
  7. If you refuse the financial award, the court will still consider the adjudicator's decision if you decide to pursue the legal channel.

Homes Ombudsman

The government recently established the office of the homes ombudsman to, among other things:

  1. Enforce codes of practice for residential properties.
  2. Force builders to make improvements on their constructions.
  3. Provide a way for homeowners to make complaints.

Once it is in place, the ombudsman's office will provide you with a form of redress set out in the legislation if they determine that your complaints are well-founded. The office will also have powers to exclude Homebuilders from the Homes Ombudsman scheme should they find them guilty of contravening the outlined provisions.

Small Claims Court

If you are unhappy with the decisions made thus far, you could pursue the issue further in a small claims court. However, you cannot seek compensation exceeding £10,000 in England and Wales.
