We have received reports that people claiming to work for Morgan Sindall (South Essex Homes repair contractor) are knocking on residents doors.
They are trying to gain access to carry out repairs in Southend and the south Essex area.
Please only allow entry to your property to people who are wearing identification – there should be a phone number to call to verify their appointment. It is your right to verify the caller and an authentic operative will not mind waiting while you do so.
No operative would turn up without an appointment and you will have received text reminders about forthcoming appointments.
Sometimes subcontractors will have been assigned by Morgan Sindall, however they will also carry ID with an ID number.
If you live in sheltered accommodation, please do not allow tailgating into the building and always ask for I.D before allowing entry.
Please be vigilant and report any incidents to 101
