POLICE & TRADING STANDARDS URGE RESIDENTS TO BE AWARE

OF COLD CALLING

Police and Trading Standards are urging residents to be aware of cold calling. Such incidents involve cold callers approaching homeowners and offering to carry out gardening works or home repairs. Victims of cold calling can be charged a significant amount of money, sometimes a lot more than the initially agreed price, for a small amount of work.

Residents are advised not to buy services from unsolicited callers at the door. If you are looking for a trader to carry out work on your property then you can look for a trader using County Council Trader Registers which are run by Trading Standards.

Since July 2013, when agreeing a contract in their home, consumers are entitled to a 14 day cooling off period. A trader must provide specific information about your rights to cancel in writing and also ensure that you have the correct name and address for the trader.

For information about your rights or to report a rogue trader please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service (CACS) on 03454 04 05 06. CACS provides first line advice on Trading Standards issues.

To check the Trading Standards Trader Register please go online www.traderregister.org.uk or call 01905 822799 for more information.
