Rushcliffe police warn residents about a spate of cold callers offering to carry out roof repairs.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police (Rushcliffe South) said,
‘Following several recent incidents of males cold calling at addresses offering to undertake roof repairs in the Rushcliffe area can we advise residents to not agree to have any work undertaken without getting several quotes or having knowledge of the firm.’
‘Many of these cold callers are not qualified to do the work they are suggesting and will often change their quote or find extra work they suggests is needed once they are on site.’
‘If you do agree to a quote from them you have a fourteen day period under the consumer credit act in which to cancel the agreement.’
