We’ve had a report from one of our tenants alleging that they’ve had people calling at their home in the Stockbrook Street area.
Two men claiming to be Derby Homes employees visited a house saying they had come to replace the tenant’s guttering, and that a letter would be sent out shortly. The men were not wearing uniforms and were driving a grey van, which made the tenant suspicious. She contacted us and we confirmed that the two men had not been sent by Derby Homes. This information has been passed to the police.
Please be aware these bogus workmen may be in the area. All Derby Homes operatives wear uniform and carry ID – you are within your rights to request to see ID if you are unsure.
Remember, if you are in any doubt, you should not let people in the house. Contact us on 01332 888777 and we will be happy to help.
If you feel threatened or unsafe, you should contact the police.
