CORNWALL HOMECHOICE WILLFUL DECEPTION AWARD (39)


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

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 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 (39) : 28/03/2015 to 01/04/2015.

1st place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & DEVON & CORNWALL HOUSING (DCH), for using the description "No Photo Available" for 7 of it's advertised properties.

2nd place 'Willful Deception Award' goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & joint winners OCEAN HOUSING and SANCTUARY HOUSING. CORNWALL COUNCIL for using the description "No Photo Available" for 2 of it's advertised properties, OCEAN HOUSING for using the description "No Photo Available" for 2 of it's advertised properties, and SANCTUARY HOUSING for using the description "Artist's impression" and the same photo for 2 of it's advertised properties.

The 3rd place 'Willful Deception Award' this week is a new trial category.

If a property described as "Front view" uses a photo/image showing more than the actual property on offer, a block, a street, an estate, a landscape etc. the new 'Willful Deception Award' will go to the 2 landlords who misleadingly show the most properties in their photo/image.

Featured pictures this week, above, goes to DCH for it's "Front view" of a 2 Bed Flat at St Ives Porthmeor Beach, Ref : 18509, and SANCTUARY HOUSING for it's "Front view" of a 1 Bed Flat in Falmouth High Street, Ref : 18514.

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 was advertised this week, Ref : 18420, and will be the subject of a separate blog. I have good reason to believe the property remains in a state of disrepair, and hopefully it has not been 'ringfenced' again.

There is no "Mansell Award" this week.

Statistics : Of the 47 properties advertised this week 32 were shown. However the abuse of "Front view", as shown above, does not in fact give an accurate view of the actual property on offer.

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