Latest news from Kent Trading Standards


We are warning Kent residents of doorstep criminals taking advantage of the current bad weather. Anyone calling at your home offering to do work on your roof, guttering, driveway, or inside your property, should be treated with caution.

Accepting work from a doorstep criminal can result in paying much more than you intended for very poor, unnecessary and sometimes dangerous work.

If you require work done to your home get at least three quotes and never give a doorstep caller cash.  For a list of Kent County Council approved traders visit Checkatrade or phone 0333 0146 190. 

Please look out for neighbours and report any suspicious doorstep criminals to us.
