Re: res allowance

Re: stage 2 complaint

<t>Hi Clairespex, it sounds like a service failure,to be sure that you reserve your rights to escalate the complaint if required remember that<br/> the time period you have to notify the LGO is a year from the time when you first became aware of the matters forming the basis of the complaint.
