The Property Ombudsman provides an impartial and independent service for resolving disputes. Agents who are members of TPO follow its Codes of Practice which set the standard expected from property professionals. The Ombudsman’s Codes can be found on its website. The service is free of charge to consumers. The Ombudsman does not regulate the property industry, that is the role of Trading Standards and the government. The Ombudsman’s role is to provide redress for consumers, which aims to put them back into the position they were in before the complaint arose. Visit www.tpos.co.uk.
