CORNWALL HOMECHOICE WILLFUL DECEPTION AWARD (37)


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 (37) : 14/03/2015 to 18/03/2015.

1st place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & DEVON & CORNWALL HOUSING (DCH), for using the description and image "No Photo Available" for 6 of it's advertised properties, and for using the description "Energy performance certificate" for 1 other property.

2nd place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & SANCTUARY HOUSING ASSOCIATION, for using the description "Artist's impression" for 4 of it's advertised properties, and for using the description and no image "Monument Way" for 1 other property.

3rd place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & COASTLINE HOUSING, for using the description and no image "Artist's impression" for 4 of it's advertised properties.

Featured picture this week, above, shows Property Ref : 18308, a 1 Bed Flat in Bude Stratton owned by Cornwall Council. Photo of property taken 26/2/1998, I kid you not. Property Ref : 18323, another advertised 1 Bed Flat in Bude Stratton also owned by Cornwall Council uses a photo taken 3/11/2003.

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 63 properties advertised this week just over 2/3rds (43) were shown.
