We aim to ensure that all of our client’s receive the best possible service and are left completely happy and satisfied with their contact with us. In the vast majority of cases, this will be the experience of our clients. However if you are left feeling dissatisfied with any part of any service you receive, then in the first instance you should direct your complaint to Charles Guthrie, who will seek to resolve your complaint using the firm’s own complaints procedure.
Generally we will make all reasonable efforts to ensure your complaint is resolved at that stage.
If the complaint has still not been resolved then as we hold membership of the Notaries Society we will refer your complaint to the Notaries Society to deal with using their Approved Complaints Procedure. Complaints to the Notaries Society should be submitted to:
Secretary of The Notaries Society
PO Box 7655
Tel: 01908 803527
If the complaint still cannot be resolved then the complaint may be referred to the Registrar of Faculty Office at the details shown above.
