CORNWALL HOMECHOICE ‘WILLFUL DECEPTION AWARD’ (2)
A new 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 to the advertisement.
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 2 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 (2) : 12/07/2014 to 16/07/2014.
1st place ‘Willful Deception Award’ goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & OCEAN HOUSING, for using the “No Photo Available” caption for 5 different properties or locations.
2nd place ‘Willful Deception Award’ goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & COASTLINE HOUSING, for using the above “Energy Performance Certificate” for 3 different properties or locations. (Values differed).
The serious side to this on-going problem is that when I have gathered enough evidence I will lodge a formal written complaint with Devon & Cornwall Constabulary.
But won’t D&CC just protect Cornwall Council and the Landlords I hear you say ? absolutely, but what D&CC won’t do is claim it never received it.
