Thistle Underwriting always aim to get things right first time and we are committed to ensuring that we achieve the highest level of service for our customers. If you feel this hasn’t happened, we would like to hear about it so that we have an opportunity to put things right for you and to improve our service in the future. Your complaint will be reviewed promptly and fairly by an independent party to the complaint itself.

Our process

We will promptly acknowledge your complaint and we will try to resolve your complaint immediately. If this is not possible, we will write to you within 5 days informing you whether further investigation is necessary.
In the event that your complaint has not been resolved within 4 weeks of its receipt, we will contact you again and provide an update; the reasons why and the further action we will take.
If following our investigation and response to you, you are not satisfied with the outcome or we do not complete our investigation within 8 weeks, you can refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Services (FOS).
If you receive a final response letter from us and you are dissatisfied with the outcome and you want to contact the Financial Ombudsman Services (FOS) you must do so within 6 months of the date of our final response letter.
