HSBC Complaints Department

If you have an issue with HSBC products or services, it’s important to raise your complaint as soon as possible. There are a number of ways that you can do this: by visiting your local branch, by calling the complaints number on this page or online via internet banking.

HSBC records the details of every complaint that it receives in order to improve things in the future. The majority of issues are solved straight away but if the complaint is a little more complicated, you will be sent a letter of acknowledgement within 5 working days- this will explain what HSBC plans to do next and when you can expect to hear from them. The final response from the bank will be sent by letter.

HSBC Complaints Address

If you wish to make your complaint in writing, you can do so by writing to:

Customer Care Team
HSBC Bank Plc, PO Box 6125,
Coventry, CV3 9GW

Remember to include as much detail as possible, such as what happened and any proof that you have, such as bank statements or letters. You should also outline how you want the situation to be resolved, i.e. a refund or compensation and when you expect the complaint to be solved by.

HSBC PPI Complaints

Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) was a product sold by banks. It meant that in the event of your death or unemployment, your loan repayments would be covered by the insurance. HSBC stopped selling PPI in 2008, but before that, the bank had five PPI products:

  • Cardholder Repayment Plan
  •  Personal Loan Protection Plan
  • Flexiloan Repayment Plan
  • Mortgage Repayment Protection
  • Small Business Loan Protection

There were concerns that some of these products may have been mis-sold when customers were taking out mortgages or loans. As such, there has been a spike in PPI complaints over the last few years. There are several agencies who will manage the claim on your behalf but will take a percentage of the claim once it has been paid out. You can cut out the middleman by taking your complaint straight to HSBC using the phone number on this page.

HSBC aims to resolve your PPI complaint within eight weeks. If you don’t receive a response within this timeframe, you can pass your complaint on to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

HSBC Mortgage Complaints

If you have a complaint about your mortgage, it’s important to inform HSBC as soon as possible, using the complaints number on this page or one of the alternative methods. If you are unhappy with your rate of interest, monthly payment or you feel as though your mortgage was mis-sold to you, raise the issue with HSBC.

HSBC Credit Card Complaints

If you have taken out a credit card with HSBC and you feel that the interest rate is not what you were sold or there is another issue with the card, you can make a complaint to HSBC. You can do this by using your internet banking, writing to the bank or by calling 0844 826 8030.
