CORNWALL HOMECHOICE WILLFUL DECEPTION AWARD (27) SANCTUARY HOUSING SPECIAL. (REVISED)

 

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 (27) : 03/01/2015 to 07/01/2015.

 

1st place ‘Willful Deception Award’ goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & SANCTUARY HOUSING ASSOCIATION, for using the description and image “No Photo Available” for 24 of it’s advertised properties, the description and image “Artist’s impression” for 2 other advertised properties and for using the description “Actual property not shown” for 1 of it’s advertised properties. Most of the “No Photo Available” properties being New Builds not available until March/April 2015. Sanctuary Housing was last weeks 1st place Loser.

 

2nd place ‘Willful Deception Award’ goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & CORNWALL COUNCIL, for using the “No Photo Available” description and image for 2 of it’s advertised properties and for using the description “Artist’s impression” for 2 other advertised property. CC is named twice because it owns the website.

 

3rd place ‘Willful Deception Award’ goes to CORNWALL COUNCIL & JOINTLY WITH DEVON & CORNWALL HOUSING (DCH) and CORNWALL RURAL HOUSING ASSOCIATION. DCH for using the “No Photo Available” description and image for 2 of it’s advertised properties and for using the description “Bedroom 1” for 1 other advertised property. CRHA for using the “No Photo Available” description and image for 3 of it’s advertised properties.

 

Featured picture this week, above, comes as a warning to would be Sanctuary tenants. It shows the consequences of external water damage to a 20 year old flat in Timber Close, St Austell. The damage was reported no less than 5 years ago and according to Sanctuary Housing the external water damage is the responsibility of the tenant to put right. The tenant is vulnerable, has long term mental disorder and is on benefits. The damage is very high up and would require special equipment.

Statistics : Of the 49 properties advertised this week 39 were not actually shown which is pretty pathetic and unhelpful when one considers how quickly a digital image can be uploaded.

 

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

 

31 January 2015 : The above is a revised Blog in response to a threat of legal action to the web server of my http://www.geoffscameras.co.uk website by Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co LLP, acting on behalf of the Charity Sanctuary Housing.

 

I think it perverse of the Charity not to have spent it’s time and money on the repair rather than on paying Wragge & Co to suppress Free Speech via the back door so as not to directly challenge the author of the Blog, myself.

 

The original uncensored Blog is still available on
