Contacting the Housing Ombudsman

LJHA is committed to the provision of high quality service to our customers. We welcome complaints, comments, and compliments and we use customer feedback as an opportunity to learn about what we are doing well and where we need to improve. If you wish to make a general comment about any of the services you have received or compliment the organisation or a member of staff, please contact us.

We appreciate there may be occasions where customers are dissatisfied with the level or type of service they have received and wish to make a complaint.

  • In December 2020, we revised our new Complaints Policy to comply with changes described in the Housing Ombudsman Complaint Handling Code. The main change was that the number of stages has been reduced from 3 stages to 2 stages.
  • Housing Associations have to regularly publish a self-assessment of their Complaints Procedures. You can view LJHA’s latest self-assessment here.

LJHA Complaints Graphic

The Housing Ombudsman Service is set up by law to look at complaints about housing organisations and local authorities.

You can contact them at any point during the complaint process. The assistance they can offer depends on whether the landlord’s complaints procedure has been completed and when.

You can find further information in this poster, and in this leaflet. To learn more about the Ombudsman, please see their website at
