CORNWALL HOMECHOICE WILLFUL DECEPTION AWARD (36)

A weekly feature which will consider the picture Cornwall Homechoice applicants come across when trying to view the property they are considering bidding on

Since posting the first (2) awards I have now added a 3rd award in response to a growing contempt towards bidders. According to Cornwall Council it is the Landlord who is responsible for adding the picture and information to the advertisement.

According to Simon JR Mansell MBE, Cornwall Council is responsible for removing errors remaining on it's website if errors are pointed out to it, and that it will ask the Landlord to supply the correct information as a matter of urgency.

Because the advertisement is on Cornwall Council's website the 'Willful Deception Award' is therefore awarded to both the Council, for abdicating it's responsibility to the public, and it's worst 3 housing partners for that week.

In most cases the picture will be willfuly misleading because the Council/partners would have been aware of the problem previously.

Week (36) : 07/03/2015 to 11/03/2015.

1st place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & DEVON & CORNWALL HOUSING (DCH), for using the description and image "No Photo Available" for 5 of it's advertised properties, for using the description "Artist's impression" for 3 other properties, and for using the description "Bedroom 1" for another 2 properties.

2nd place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & COASTLINE HOUSING, for using the description and image of an "Energy performace certificate" for no less than 9 of it's advertised properties.

3rd place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & SANCTUARY HOUSING ASSOCIATION, for using the description and image "No Photo Available", for 2 of it's advertised properties, for using the description and image "Artist's impression" for 2 further properties and for using "Actual property not shown" for 1 other property.

Featured picture this week, above, shows one of the 9 energy certificates used by Coastline Housing. Perhaps Mr Derek Law MBE, Non Executive Director of Coastine Housing, should ask himself if he or members of his family would be happy to see a picture of an energy certificate rather than a picture of the actual property on offer.

As an up-date to the Homechoice property at Timber Close, St Austell, mentioned last week and which has wilfully remained empty since before December 2014, this property continues to be empty and in disrepair.

There is no "Mansell Award" this week.

Statistics : Of the 73 properties advertised this week just over half (40) were shown.
