Selling a Business

Hilton Smythe complaints procedure

Every business has them and we’re no different. If you’re not happy we want to know. Fortunately we don’t get that many complaints, but when we do, we want to put things right. That’s why we have the Hilton Smythe complaints procedure.

Hilton Smythe really do care more. If we are selling your business, we want that experience to be the best it possibly can be. We don’t always get it right but we try hard.

Complaints are a way of customers telling us when things haven’t gone to plan or as expected and allow us to investigate and put things right. Complaints also ensure we can avoid making the same mistake twice. This is why we have the Hilton Smythe Complaints procedure in place. So if you do have a problem, you can be sure if we are wrong, you won’t lose out.

Property Ombudsman

As part of the Hilton Smythe Complaints procedure, we are a voluntary member of the Property Ombudsman; giving you real peace of mind when working with us.

If you exhaust the Hilton Smythe Complaints procedure and remain unhappy, you can ask the Ombudsman to look into your complaint, independently. The Ombudsman have the power to award compensation to customers who they agree have been treated unfairly. We think this is great news for both current and future customers.
