      Hi Diana. It’s not too late to start the dispute resolution process through Heritage. There are some forms you will have to fill out (I’ve sent them to your email). You can do this online and fax them in or visit a Heritage branch. Sorry for the delayed response, hope it all works out. Jacob.
