On the assumption that you are a registered business entity, door to door sales are not exactly illegal. However, it is useful to note that a door to door sale, when not expressly consented to, is considered an unsolicited sale. Under the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) (Cancellation of Contracts) Regulations 2009, consumers have the right to cancel a direct sales contract within five days of signing the contract, provided the visit was unsolicited. In order to sell things in public places, which encompasses street sales, you need a licence under the Street Hawking Scheme. The licence will cost a fee and will confine you to a certain spot. It’s also worth noting that licences are doled out on a case-by-case basis, and can be rejected for no reason.
