HOMECHOICE PROPERTY REF : 13728
“With regards to property ref : 13728 we have made a nomination to Sanctuary Housing and they are considering this applicant. Unfortunately I can not comment on their processes or timescales.”, unquote, Jon Warner, Homechoice Manager West/Central, Cornwall Housing Limited, on 18 March 2014.
“With regard to the void property in Timber Close and the length of time that it has remained empty ; I can assure you that we have followed the correct procedure in this case.”, unquote, Helen Harding, Sanctuary Housing Operations Manager – South West, for and on behalf of Sanctuary’s CEO and Group Directors, on 8 April 2014.
Homechoice property Ref : 13728 was advertised in January and bidding closed on 22 January 2014. The property has not since been re-advertised.
Although there are approximately 28,000 applicants registered with Cornwall Homechoice there are “only a small number of vacancies each week”, unquote, according to the Council.
A FEW FACTS
The property has now remained empty for in excess of 80 days.
The loss of revenue in keeping the property empty now amounts to in excess of £900.00.
Neither Cornwall Council or the “Charity” Sanctuary Housing will confirm who will make up this loss of revenue
