We will then undertake a proper investigation and respond to you with a formal written outcome within 15 working days from the date of receipt of your written complaint.
Please write (by letter or email) outlining the specific details of your complaint to:
Lakes Estates Property Services Ltd Unit 13 & 14 Devonshire Arcade, Penrith, Cumbria CA11 7SX
