Help Us Improve

Our customers are our top priority, and we work hard to provide you with the best possible service. However, if at any time you think we haven't met your expectations please let us know. We will try to do everything we can do to put things right.

Our complaints process

To help deal with your complaint, we have a complaints procedure that you can use to make us aware of any problems you've encountered. We'll do our best to address things quickly and fairly.

Our complaints procedure meets the requirements of both the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).

Ways to make a complaint


If you're unhappy about the service you have received from us, please let us know by filling in our online complaints form.

It's often easier to discuss things face-to-face so, if you are able to visit your local branch.

What happens next?

We will do everything we can to resolve your complaint as soon as we can.

For more complex issues we may need more time to investigate your concerns. If this is the case, we will :

  • Write to let you know we have received your complaint, and then
  • Provide you with a response to the issues you've raised as soon as possible. Our complaints procedure allows us eight weeks to do this, but we will do our best to get back to you within four weeks

If we can't respond to the issue within four weeks, we will contact you to explain why that has not been possible, and when we will contact you again.

Once our final response is made, if you have any concerns please do get back in touch. In the vast majority of cases we are able to resolve issues directly with our customers. However, if you still feel your complaint has not been dealt with satisfactorily, you will then have the option of contacting the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) at:

Financial Ombudsman Service
Exchange Tower
E14 9SR

Tel: 0800 023 4567

Email: complaint.info@financial-ombudsman.org.uk

Web: www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk

We will send you a leaflet detailing the FOS complaints procedure with our response. If you remain dissatisfied, you have up to six months from the date of our response letter to refer your complaint to the FOS.

The European Commission provides an on-line dispute resolution (ODR) platform for goods and services bought online. This allows customers to submit their complaint through a central site and forwards it on to the right Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) scheme. For more information about ODR please visit http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

The ADR scheme for Yorkshire Building Society is the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) and you can go to them directly as shown in the contact details above.

The Complaints publication reports show how many complaints Yorkshire Building Society received and dealt with during a reporting period.
