How does Resolver work?

Explains your rights to you

You'll find no legal jargon in our simple, comprehensive consumer rights sections. Our guidance is tailored specifically for every type of issue.

Helps you prepare your emails

We provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case, and in a few short clicks your issue will be ready to go.

Creates a case file for you

Your case file is a secure online location for all important documents regarding your issue. You can upload photos, tickets, copies of receipts or external emails from before you raised your issue with Resolver.

Lets you record all your communications

One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.

Lets you know when to escalate your complaint

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

Based on resolver’s experience to date, every product and service installed under the Green Deal will be covered by a warranty. This is a promise from the trader or manufacturer to sort out faults that develop with your product.

Most Green Deal equipment comes with a five-year warranty for the equipment, and 10 years' warranty for any building damage caused by the installation. Cavity and solid wall insulation have a full 25-year warranty. If things go wrong with the goods or service, you may want to make a claim under the warranty.

However, many Green Deal improvements have extremely lengthy repayment periods. So if your new boiler breaks in year eight, its warranty will have expired. You'll need to pay to fix it, but you'll also still have to pay your Green Deal provider each month.

If your claim is refused and you feel that your contract has been breached, you should write to the provider, making it clear that you will be claiming for any money spent on a third party repair unless they rectify the situation. Remember to keep evidence of quotes and cost of work and include these in your future claim.

It is extremely frustrating when you are told that your warranty or guarantee isn’t valid.

There is a Code of Practice which sets out requirements designed to ensure that all Green Deal Participants and Certification Bodies:

• operate fairly and transparently;
• deliver good customer service;
• have appropriate levels of training;
• and provide appropriate redress mechanisms for customers.

Green Deal Participants and Certification Bodies must ensure that a copy of this Code of Practice is made available, free of charge, to anyone who requests it. This should help you to understand your specific rights if something goes wrong.
