  • Written by Editor

Hampshire News | Hampshire County Council's Trading Standars Warning To Hampshire Residents| Romsey & VillagesHampshire County Council’s Trading Standards Service is warning the public to be wary of cold callers at the door offering property maintenance work, including roof work.

Although consumers have statutory rights when buying at the door, including a 14 day right to cancel for goods over £42, the right to a refund, replacement or repair if the goods are faulty, falsely described or not fit for purpose. Those rights can only be exercised if the seller is a trader, and if they give full and correct contact information. Trading Standards recommend residents do not buy goods at the door.

Members of Hampshire County Council Trading Standards Buy With Confidence scheme are fully audited to ensure their trading practices are legal, honest and fair. All members have been checked for trustworthiness and compliance with consumer protection laws.

Details can be obtained by calling 01962 833620, emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or at www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk

If anyone has any information about traders who are cold calling or requires any advice on doorstep crime they can contact the County Council's Quick Response Team on 01962 833666 (Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm) where specially trained officers are on hand to provide advice.

If assistance is required outside of these hours please contact Hampshire Constabulary on their non-urgent number 101 or dial 999 if you feel threatened or intimidated.
