CORNWALL HOMECHOICE WILLFUL DECEPTION AWARD (38)


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 (38) : 21/03/2015 to 25/03/2015.

1st place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & SANCTUARY HOUSING ASSOCIATION, for using the description "No Photo Available" for 2 of it's advertised properties, the description "Artist's impression" for 6 of it's advertised properties, and for using the description "Actual property not shown" for 3 other advertised properties.

2nd place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & DEVON & CORNWALL HOUSING (DCH), for using the description "No Photo Available" for 6 of it's advertised properties, and for using the description "Artist's impression" for 4 other advertised properties.

3rd place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & CORNWALL COUNCIL, for using the description "Artist's impression" for 4 of it's advertised properties. CC is named twice because it owns the website

Featured picture this week, above, shows Property Ref : 18437, a 2 Bed Bungalow in Rosenannon, Mawnan, owned by Coastline Housing. If you look really hard there is definately something there - but would you want to live there ?

As an up-date to the Homechoice flat at Timber Close, St Austell, mentioned recently and which has remained willfuly empty since before December 2014, this property is advertised this week, Ref : 18420, and will be the subject of a separate blog. Having taken photographs of the property this morning I have good reason to believe the property remains in a state of disrepair. Hopefully it has not been 'ringfenced' again.

There is no "Mansell Award" this week.

Statistics : Of the 73 properties advertised this week just over 1/2 (40) were shown. Of which some were duplicated images and also included the featured image.

In order to keep weekly Blogs short please read Blogs prior to week (14) for objectives, reasons and responsibilities.
