  • If you have had to leave your home and/or vehicle you are advised to make them as secure as possible by locking windows and doors and removing valuables if you can do so safely.
  • Keep an eye on your neighbours’ properties too, and be alert to any suspicious activity especially around those premises that are left empty during the clear up and renovation works.
  • You are reminded to be aware of doorstep callers who may use the opportunity to trick their way into your property. They will use a variety of tactics to cheat people out of their money and/or steal items from their properties. They may for instance say they are checking the water, gas or electricity supply and need to turn it off because there is a leak further down the road.
  • Always ask for identification before allowing anyone into your property and make a note of their name, address and telephone number. If in any doubt do not let them in.
  • If the trader is aggressive or you feel at all threatened you can call the Police on 101.
