Complaints against an installer

If your complaint is about an installer, the standard of work or customer service of a contractor, please ensure your complaint is directed towards the installation company. The contract of works always takes place between the Customer and the Installer.

If the Installer does not respond adequately or within a sufficient time frame, please complete the complaints form here and return to Action Surrey at We will need to understand the nature of the complaint, so please including as much information as possible, along with any existing correspondence between yourself and the installer

At Action Surrey’s discretion, an independent surveyor may be utilised to conduct a survey of the works. A report will be conducted, the findings of which are final and binding, and will be communicated to all parties. If the report concludes that corrective works are required to complete the installation to standard, the installer will be notified and given a 30 day compliance period. If the works are found to be completed to the required standard, Action Surrey will arrange payment to the installer.

Action Surrey works in partnership with Trading Standards and other trade associations in evaluating performance and customer service of its contractors.

If your complaint has not been resolved satisfactorily or has exceeded our 28 day target, you can request a review of your complaint by our Operations Manager. You must put your request for an internal review in writing to:
