Our complaints procedure as set out in our Scheme Rules is copied below for ease of reference:
Our aim is to provide a first class service to all Users and Tenants and to do everything we can to ensure that you are satisfied. If you feel that we have fallen short of this standard and you wish to complain, you should do so in writing at:
mydeposits Northern Ireland
Or by email at: email@example.com if you are registered with our insurance-based Scheme; or
firstname.lastname@example.org if you are registered with our custodial Scheme.
To aid resolution of any complaint, the complaint must be made within six months of the event occurring. We will only deal with a complaint from a User or Tenant of a Protected Deposit. If a Landlord Client wishes to make a complaint, this must be provided through the Agent Member of the Scheme (the User).
The timescales for dealing with a complaint are as follows:
You will receive a response from us within 1 Working Day
If we are unable to resolve the matter within 1 Working Day, we will provide a substantive response within 5 Working Days.
After sending this response we may deem the complaint closed. If we deem the matter closed then we reserve the right not to enter into any further correspondence.
This Complaints Procedure cannot be used to appeal against an Adjudication decision or a Review decision as agreeing to use the DRM to resolve a Deposit Dispute means agreeing to be bound by the decision of the Adjudicator.
