Know Your Rights!

Advice from Trading Standards

How to deal with doorstep sellers

Doorstep selling is when someone sells you goods or services in your home or on your doorstep. It can be convenient to buy on the doorstep - but you can be pressured into buying something you do not want or that is not good value for money by a salesperson using clever selling tactics. If this happens you are not always protected by the law.

The Office of Fair Trading has produced a new leaflet called Your doorstep, your decision, which describes some of these psychological tactics and gives advice on how to deal with them.  It also tells you your legal rights.  If you would like a copy of this booklet please contact Trading Standards at the address below.  Alternatively, it can be viewed on the OFT website:
