Housing Ombudsman Service Determination analysis
Some of the complaints that we have not managed to resolve go to the Housing Ombudsman Service. It is a free, independent, and impartial service that looks at customer complaints. We are working closely with the Ombudsman to resolve complaints earlier, and we’re learning from their decisions (the results of their investigations).
In the last year, we have worked with the Ombudsman on 34 complaints. Their decisions were:
- No Maladministration: 9
- Maladministration: 6
- Service Failure: 9
- Severe Maladministration: 0
