If your complaint concerns our vehicles division and you are not satisfied with the outcome Latitude has provided, as we are a member of the BVRLA they can be contacted to review the complaint in question.
The BVRLA will aim to resolve the matter using the information presented to both parties to the dispute. Please send any evidence you wish to be considered with the complaint as the Conciliation Service is an evidence based service. Any information requested from Latitude should be sent within five working days to the BVRLA. Based on the information available, the BVRLA will provide both parties with its findings and recommendations. The BVRLA aims to resolve complaints through the Conciliation Service within 30 days.
The CS will investigate potential breaches of codes of conduct, which sets out the standard the BVRLA expects from its members. The Conciliation Service can only look at matters that relate to disputes arising from the activity of BVRLA members.
Where the Conciliation Service finds in favour of the customer, they will aim to ensure that any unjustified charges incorrectly raised by Latitude are refunded in full. The service cannot adjudicate on the quantum of the amount charged, only on whether the charge was correctly raised.
The Conciliation Service does not award compensation payments in relation to alleged financial losses or inconvenience caused. As a BVRLA member, Latitude must comply with the rulings of the Conciliation Service. Use of the service does not restrict your rights to pursue remedies through the courts.
