Bogus letter warning for Newark and Sherwood tenants

TENANTS of Newark and Sherwood-owned homes are being warned to be vigilant over a bogus letter being posted out.

The letters are in reference to Smoke Control Areas and features the company’s logo, but they have not been sent by Newark and Sherwood Homes and the company is not asking tenants or local residents for access to their homes in relation to the burning of fossil fuels.

All communications from Newark and Sherwood Homes are on official company letterhead and any staff calling on tenants or residents would carry official identification.

Tenants and residents are being reminded to ask any callers who claim to be from Newark and Sherwood Homes for appropriate identification and to contact 0845 258 5550 if they would like to check.

Anyone who has concerns about this issue is advised to contact the police.
