How to make a complaint
Silver Service aims to make it easy for you to bring any problems or complaints to our attention.
You should first raise your issue with the agent, representative or property manager who is handling your business.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome from the relevant Silver Service representative, you can also make a complaint to your local Complaint Officer
Please provide as much detail as possible about your complaint, including the outcome you would like.
If you need help to describe or send your complaint, or if you would like to discuss your concerns informally first, please feel free to contact us.
How we will handle your complaint
We will oversee the complaints process. We are responsible for working with you and relevant agency staff, to ensure that the issues you raise are fully examined and that your complaint is handled in accordance with this process.
We will treat the process, and all the details of your complaint, in strict confidence. If we need to discuss any issues arising from your complaint with someone outside of the agency, we will obtain your consent first.
We will always try to give you a fair opportunity to explain your case. You should make your initial complaint as clear as possible. Sometimes we may want to meet you in person to discuss your concerns and try to find a satisfactory solution.
How long will it take?
We will try to resolve your complaint as soon as possible. However, how long this takes will depend on the nature and complexity of the issues you have raised.
We will send you acknowledgment of receipt of the complaint within two business days. We will always try to match our response to the nature of your complaint and your desired outcome, but this may not always be possible.
What action will we take in response to your complaint?
If we decide that your complaint is justified, we will then decide what action we should take in response. We will always try to match our response to the nature of your complaint and your desired outcome, but this may not always be possible.
Some of the things we might do include:
- take steps to rectify the problem or issue you have raised
- give you additional information or advice so you can understand what happened or how we have dealt with it
- take steps to change our policies or procedures if your complaint identifies a problem in the way we are doing things.
What if you still feel your complaint remains unresolved?
Sometimes it will not be possible to resolve a complaint to everyone’s satisfaction, and you might want to escalate the matter to the Estate Agents Resolution Service (EARS) at Consumer Affairs Victoria.
EARS can deal with enquiries and complaints about real estate agents and offers information, advice and dispute resolution services on real estate issues.
You can telephone EARS on 1300 73 70 30 weekdays to discuss your complaint.
