Step 3: Bringing the complaint before the court

If the Financial Services Complaints Tribunal (Kifid) cannot handle your complaint, you may consider applying to the courts. If you go to court, you will subsequently not be able to apply to the Kifid.

Subsidised legal assistance

Do you have a low income or few personal assets? Then you may qualify for subsidised legal assistance. The government will then pay part of the legal costs and you will pay an personal contribution. For more information on legal proceedings or subsidised legal assistance you can contact a lawyer or a Legal Desk. This is an independent organisation with offices throughout the Netherlands.

Consumer law within the European Union
