Legal Ombudsman updates Scheme Rules

25 March 2019

Today, the Legal Ombudsman is publishing its new Scheme Rules, which will take effect from Monday 1 April 2019. The changes reflect the transfer of complaints about claims management companies (CMCs) to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).

The updated version of the Scheme Rules approved was by the Legal Services Board in February 2019.
