We have received reports of tenants being visited by bogus home callers claiming to be working with Torus (Liverpool Mutual Homes and HMS), often offering ‘no win, no fee’ legal advice to customers whose homes they claim are suffering from disrepair. There are also reports of tenants receiving phone calls from people claiming to be working with Torus.
These callers carry no form of Torus identification and are advising customers not to allow Torus or HMS operatives into their homes to carry out repairs, and instead are claiming that they will be able to get compensation for the tenant.

Torus is committed to reducing door-step crime, including bogus callers and rogue traders. To help safeguard against these types of callers, please observe the following tips:
