Residents warned against doorstep conmen

Residents warned against doorstep conmen

- Enfield Council is warning residents not to agree to costly home improvements on the doorstep
- Work is often unnecessary and expensive
- Vulnerable and older residents are most at risk

bogus tradesEnfield Council is urging residents not to sign up for home improvements on the doorstep to ensure they are not scammed and conned out of thousands of pounds for unnecessary building work.

Residents are being warned to beware of workmen who turn up offering to do home improvement repairs, lay new driveways or provide gardening services.

The repairs are often completely unnecessary and/or can result in people being overcharged by thousands of pounds compared to the true cost of works.
 
In some cases residents have been escorted to the bank by the rogue builders to withdraw large sums of money in cash to pay for the works. 
 
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: “These conmen generally target the older and more vulnerable members of society, and though we will not hesitate to prosecute any known rogue sellers and seek to recoup any money victims have lost, it is, of course, preferable if residents avoid getting ensnared in the first place.

"We therefore strongly advise residents not to sign up for any building works on the doorstep, however tempting the offer may be. Remember a moment's hesitation can lead to a lifetime of regret."

How do uninvited doorstep sellers operate?
 
-Usually they “cold call” i.e. knock at your door without invitation;

-If their vehicle has a UK registration they may park it out of sight;

-They persuade the resident to have work done that is not necessary – typically, to the roof, driveways, gutters and fascias or general garden work;

-Often they will say they are only working in the area for a short time so are offering you a special or discounted price, and then pressurise you for the works to start straight away;

-Once work starts, they may say they want more money and provide you with poor reasons;

-They may ask you to make payment by bank transfer. be particularly suspicious if this is to an account, not in the trader's name. Remember, if in doubt, DO NOT PAY OUT;

-They will not offer you a “cooling off” period, which you are legally entitled to; and

-They will not give you written notice detailing your right to cancel the contract.

Enfield Council offers the following advice to residents:
 
-Don’t rush to part with your money. Wait 14 days to cool off and think about it, get other quotes and opinions.

Most repair and maintenance can wait 14 days before you agree to contract. Do not be pressurised by false claims such as ‘your roof is rotten and can fall down’ or ‘you can be prosecuted if someone is hurt’ by an issue at your property.

These are just tricks these con artists use to prey on your fears. Never pay cash, only pay directly (cheque, credit/debit card, bank transfer) in the name of the person your contract is with.

-If you are approached by any person offering to carry out repairs to your property, and you feel unable to say no, tell them you are not the home owner. If you not sure who is at your door, don’t open the door. 

-You can carry out checks of any trader you are thinking of employing to do work at your property.

Visit the trader at their business or home address to confirm who they are, and/or ask for photo i.d and a recent utility bill and keep a copy. Ask for their public liability insurance, and what permissions and qualifications are required for the work to be carried out.

Check online or with a surveyor. If you feel you may have a rogue trader at your property, without putting yourself at harm take a picture of the vehicle registration number and trader. 

-You should always use a reputable trader and get three quotes for the work.

-If you feel threatened ring 999 or if you are suspicious call Citizens Advice on 03454 04 05 06 who will refer the matter to Enfield Trading Standards who will then contact you. 

-Visit Which? Trusted Trader website for a list of contractors who have signed up to trading responsibly.

The survey is now live and it can be accessed via our www.enfield.gov.uk/enfieldtownmasterplan

Enfield Council signs up for discounted IPC World Para Athletics Championship ticket deal


- Family of four will be able to watch world class competition for under £25
- Deal struck with Mayor of London for Enfield residents to get cheaper tickets
- Event runs between 14-23 July

Enfield residents can get discounted tickets for the forthcoming IPC World Para Athletics Championships after the Council signed up to a Mayor of London sponsored scheme.

The offer means a family of four can attend one of the biggest global sporting events this year – taking place between 14-23 July at the London stadium in Stratford, for under £25.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety & Public Health, Cllr Krystle Fonyonga, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Enfield residents to enjoy one of the biggest global sporting events of the year and watch world class competitors pushing their bodies t the limit.

“Even better, because the British Red Cross will be the official charity partner for the World Para Athletics Championships. This means every penny raised through donations at the Championships will go towards supporting victims of the recent terror attacks in London and Grenfell Tower fire.

“I’d urge residents to sign up as soon as possible to take advantage of this fabulous offer and avoid the disappointment of missing out on tickets.”

Notes to editors

The offer is set out below:

Enfield Council has signed up to a Mayor of London scheme which offers residents the opportunity to attend the IPC World Para Athletics Championships.
• All tickets are discounted to £9 per adult (over 16) and £3 per child (16 and under).
• Residents will be able to purchase up to 9 tickets under this deal via the ticketing website for the World Para Athletics Championships.
• Residents will be able to purchase using a discount code that will automatically reduce the price of their ticket when they reach the checkout page.
• The ticketing website is available at https://tickets.london2017athletics.com/TicketingInformation
• The discount code is – LON2017.
• The offer is available for all sessions with the exception of Sessions 6 and 8 – the two mid week morning sessions that are scheduled for school parties.
• Residents must print their tickets at home.

guide dog logoThe role involves bringing up a puppy for it's first year of life before it goes on to train as a Guide Dog, if suitable. It takes a lot of time, commitment and love but the end result is a very special animal. Feeding, training and caring for a puppy's daily needs is time consuming. When very young, puppies cannot be left on their own for extended periods of time. Our guideline is 3 hours maximum. Will you be able to commit the time required for this?

The puppy will need exposure to busy town conditions on a regular basis: shops, traffic, crowds. It will also need to be familiarised with car travel and public transport. Would you be able to provide this experience?

You need to have a suitable area in your home to accomodate the puppy with easy access to a hard surfaced or gravel toileting area.

You will receive support throughout the process from a Puppy Walking Supervisor. They will visit regularly to check on progress, give practical advice and assist with any difficulties you may encounter.

 

Minimum age: 18 years

Any current pets must be of a suitable temperament for the puppy.Guide Dogs

This role is not suitable for full time workers.

You must be willing to adhere to the training instructions set by supervisors or this could impact on the puppy's future training as a Guide Dog.

This opportunity is currently only available in the following postcodes: EN1-EN5

Mon 24 July - Fri 25 August

We have some great news!

We are currently in the process of becoming OFSTED registered.

This will hopefully extend so many opportunities to families within the community.

We do however need to now restrict the length of time we can accommodate our 5-7year olds to a maximum of 4 hours per day.

We are hoping that we will be given OFSTED accreditation way before these dates in which case we can begin accepting children as young as 4+

We are pushing the process through as quickly as possible and will keep you posted

Please please please don't be disheartened - just drop us a message so that we can let you know straight away. We are confident it will all work out way ahead of time.

In the meantime, lets all keep our fingers and toes crossed

Request registration forms by texting your email address and full name to
