Scam Property Maintenance

Buckinghamshire Trading Standards is warning Buckinghamshire residents to be aware that the following companies are cold-calling at homes in the County recently.

  • Top Roof Coating
  • First Choice Property Maintenance

These companies have both attempted to deceive consumers into believing that they need urgent or unnecessary work carried out on their roofs and failed to provide written cancellation rights, as required by law. Subsequent inspection of the work has also found it to have been unnecessary and very over-priced.

If residents are approached by anybody purporting to be from either of these companies, or indeed any company making similar claims, they are advised to decline any offers of work until they have had the opportunity to seek a second opinion. Trading Standards would be grateful if any such approach is reported to them, or if any resident has had work done by either company and has concerns, call on: 08454 04 05 06
