Please be aware we have received reports of a company carrying out cold calling at Council homes in the North East Derbyshire and Bolsover areas and asking to inspect inside the property to check for damp and repair issues.
The company claims to be working on behalf of either North East Derbyshire District Council, Bolsover District Council or Rykneld Homes. Neither of the Councils, nor Rykneld Homes, have arranged for a company to carry out such checks.
All Council and Rykneld Homes staff carry identification badges and would have made an appointment before any such visit.
For your own personal safety, it is important that you ask any caller to show you their proof of identity (all Council and Rykneld staff and contractors carry an ID card).
All of our staff are more than happy to show you their identification card before entering your home.
