Attention Rogue Traders in your area

Alert message sent 28/01/2018 09:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police

Police are advising residents in Seaford to be wary of builders in the area cold calling offering to do work on driveways and patios. 
There have been complaints about this activity and police advice is to never employ persons cold calling no matter what they offer.  Instead only get work done that you really need and then rely on personal recommendation or local authority trade assured schemes to identify contractors and tradesmen.  Consumer protection law gives statutory cooling off periods and insists on written quotations for work given in advance.
If anyone is uncertain of their rights they can contact their local Citizens Advice Bureau.
