Videos to help you from the housing ombudsman service
The Housing Ombudsman provides a free, independent and impartial complaints resolution service. The Ombudsman’s determination may include recommendations for action and/or a financial remedy. Not all complaints are covered by the Ombudsman Scheme (PDF).
If the Ombudsman identifies possible significant systemic issues they can refer the case to the Regulator of Social Housing who can take action if there is evidence of a breach of its consumer standards and there has been, or is a risk of, ‘serious detriment’ to tenants. The Regulator does not resolve individual disputes between tenants and landlords.
