Submitting a Complaint
We are committed to providing a high-quality service to all our tenants. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve our standards.
If you have a complaint about our service, or about the service of a contractor or third party who we have instructed to provide goods or services in relation to a property occupied by you, please write down the details of your complaint and send it to:
Dupplin Estate Office, Dupplin Estate, Perth, PH2 0PY
On receipt of your complaint we will adhere to the following procedure: -
STEP 1: Acknowledgement
We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint in writing within 5 working days of receiving it, giving you a named contact who will be dealing with the complaint.
STEP 2: Investigation
Your named contact will then ivestigate your complaint and will send you a detailed written reply, including their suggestions for resolving the matter, within 10 working days of us receiving your complaint.
There may occasionally be circumstances outwith our control which prevent us from adhering to this timeframe. These include: -
when the office is closed for public holidays;
- where adverse weather or sickness has led to staff shortages;

- where we cannot respond in full without visiting the rental property and the tenant is restricting access;
- where we cannot respond in full without the input of a key member of staff who is not available.
