TrustMark is concerned about rouge traders

With the formal launch of the Green Deal to improve the environmental performance of 14 million homes, a group of 20 consumer advice bodies, charities, trade associations and building-industry organisations has urged the Government to tackle the risk of rogue traders cashing in on the Green Deal.

Led by TrustMark, the Government-endorsed quality scheme that directs people to reputable local tradesmen, the group has voiced concerns about a huge wave of ‘ancillary works’ — repairs and other improvement work that will be triggered by the Green Deal scheme, but which will fall outside the scheme’s consumer protection requirements.

TrustMark is calling for the DECC to reinstate important safeguards into the Green Deal Code of Practice.
