Alliance City Living strives to provide a high level of service; however we recognise that occasionally, we might not meet the high standards we set ourselves. If you are unhappy with our service, we’d like to know so we can put things right for you. Outlined below you’ll find some simple steps to take should you wish to make a complaint.
We’d like to deal with your issue as quickly as possible. Give us a call on 0161 804 5080 where the right member of our team will be happy to talk to you about the issue. One of our team members will attempt to resolve your complaint in the first instance, when raised verbally or via letter/email.
If one of our team members is unable to resolve your complaint over the phone or via email in the first instance, or you would like to raise a formal complaint, send us a letter or an email using the contact details below. Clearly state ‘complaint’ in the title and include as much information as possible.
All written complaints will be acknowledged within 3 working days and a Line Manager will investigate and aim to respond, and fully resolve, your complaint to the satisfaction of both parties within 15 working days of sending the acknowledgement letter/email. In the event that we’re unable to do so within this timeframe but are still working on a solution, we will contact you to provide regular updates on our progress.
At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, we will arrange for a separate review to be undertaken by an independent Senior Manager.
A Senior Manager will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days and endeavour to send a final viewpoint letter/email, resolving any issues to the satisfaction of both parties within 15 working days of sending the acknowledgement letter/email. In the event that we’re unable to do so within this timeframe but are still working on a solution, we will contact you to provide regular updates on our progress.

Who else can help?

You will need to submit your complaint to the Property Ombudsman within 12 months of receiving our final viewpoint letter, including any evidence to support your case.

If at any time during the complaints process either party feels that the situation might benefit from the involvement of an independent mediator, this can be incorporated into the process. Although we acknowledge that mediation can help resolve problems in certain situations, we do not expect it to be necessary as we are more than happy to work and communicate directly with you throughout your complaints process. Should you wish to learn more about independent mediation, you can find further information on the following website
