If you are not happy with outcome of this process, you can escalate the issue to the property ombudsman, they can independently review the matter and potentially provide. a remedy. However if this does not work and they cannot provide a remedy, you can, at this point, look at legal action to set out permitters of what they will and will not be allowed. to do. However, the court action should only be used as a last resort, it is likely the property ombudsman will be able to provide a remedy if you cannot resolve this with the complaints procedure.
