At CreditScoreOnline.co.uk we appreciate that there may be times when you may have concerns that need clarification and when, even with the best of intentions, things can go wrong. So, if you have any questions or concerns about any aspect of our blog, please let us know. We’ll then investigate the situation and, where necessary, set about putting things right as quickly as possible.
If your concern is in relation to the general use of our website, or searches showing on your credit file that you aren’t sure about, you can contact us via email or by post at CreditScoreOnline.co.uk (C/o Tygrove), 60 Windsor Avenue, London, SW19 2RR. If you remain dissatisfied once we have responded to your concern, we will then log this as a formal complaint, send you an acknowledgement and issue our final response as soon as possible (but no later than eight weeks, in line with the industry regulator requirements).
However, if your concern relates to incorrect information or an entry on your credit file (such as an incorrect address registered or a payment status incorrectly registered by a lender), please raise your concern by clicking the “raise a dispute” box within your credit file. This will ensure your query goes straight to the relevant party, as we at CreditScoreOnline.co.uk are not able to make such changes for you.
We aim to send an initial response to queries within three working days (unless it’s a dispute raised via your credit file) and, if this is not possible, within five working days.
If the complaint or query relates to one of our partners’ services incorrectly, then we refer it to the correct organisation to ensure it can be properly addressed – and we will of course inform you of this
We investigate the complaint and its source. Where we are at fault (for example, because we have breached a relevant rule or there has been an administrative error) we assess whether other customers may have been affected by the fault and put in place procedures to correct the problem.
