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, if there is a delay in your TV provider repairing a service, you may be entitled to compensation. There may be times when your TV provider needs to carry out repairs to enable your service to function properly. Your provider should have a service repairs policy, which tells you what you can expect. If you report a problem with your service and it isn't fixed within a reasonable length of time, you may be able to get some of your money back (a partial refund). Your provider may also have to pay compensation for the period when the service was not available. Double check your TV provider’s repairs policy or Code of Practice. This should be on their website or you can contact them and ask them to post you a copy. If you have bought a service agreement from your TV provider check the terms and conditions of the agreement. It may contain details about time limits for repairs to be carried out and compensation if these are not met. You should complain to your provider if you feel that the policy has been breached, or if you feel that the time it has taken for repairs to be carried out is unreasonable. If you are unhappy with your TV provider’s response, you should contact their customer services department and write giving clear details of your case - such as what happened, when, and why you are complaining. If you are unhappy with your previous provider’s customer service response, you can either contact Ofcom – the telecommunications industry regulator- or ask the Ombudsman to look into it on your behalf. resolver recommends that you submit your concern in writing, and resolver can assist you in submitting, recording and reminding you when and who to escalate to. It can be frustrating when there is a delay in your service being repaired. resolver can help you resolve this issue for free, quickly and without hassle. As a first step we can help you write your complaint, click on the link below to create your email.

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 supplier, 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.
