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, not all houses will be suitable for solar panels. Owners of listed buildings are unlikely to be allowed to install solar panels as they are more often than not highly visible.

Properties likely to fully benefit from a solar panel installation should be south-facing with little or no shading on the roof. If you don't have a south-facing roof, then you may still be able to install panels, but they might not be quite as effective.

It is also important to note that not all houses are eligible for higher rate Feed-In Tariffs (FIT) either, as there are strict rules in place preventing properties that are below certain Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)Ratings from benefiting from the scheme.

You can contact your local Energy Saving Trust Advice Centre on 0800 512 012 for more information on whether solar panels are likely to be suitable for you.

If you are unhappy with the advice, or quality of service, a company has provided, resolver recommends writing them a formal letter of complaint.

If you cannot resolve your issue you cannot raise your case to the Ombudsman until 8 weeks after you have first raised your complaint with your insurer, or you have received a ‘letter of deadlock’ from the company stating that they cannot resolve the issue as you have asked. Your complaint must also not be older than 9 months. For an accurate decision by the Ombudsman you should provide a detailed file of your communications and supporting documentation. In addition make sure you explain what you want as an outcome as this will help assess your case.
