IRH1's review of Bovis Homes


“The worst decision i ever made in my life was to buy Bovis”

Written on: 08/09/2017 by IRH1 (1 review written)

Lived in a Bovis Canterbury 4 bed detached house now for 18 months! so far I have had the following issues all the upstairs floors creak and the floorboards move so much you feel you are on a bouncy castle that's how much they bounce this is unresolved.
patio layed sloping towards the house unresolved
Creaking and moving ensuite shower tray and slopping floors in the ensuite unresolved.
wall in the upstairs master bedroom bay window so far out that the skirting board runs diagonal to the rest of the wall unresolved.
Living room ceiling and wall at different height running downhill around the bay window unresolved.
Hardwood hallway floor cut short around the stairs unresolved.
Complete new rear double glazing after all the rear windows were all
Missing UPVC under all the exterior windows
front pathway relayed
Missing front light.
Missing tiles to the ensuite that were paid for when e completed.
Add holes in walls behind radiators missing tiles to the main bathroom to the side of the shower.
Rear guttering that recently collapsed during a sudden thunderstorm
The rear garden that the sales team told us would by paved and levelled never completed and sloped so that the water runs towards the house where the rear patio has also been layed so that it also slopes towards the house causing puddles.
So overall in 18 months we have got off lightly compared to the standard of the rest of their houses.
Complained to the CEO got the standard fob off letter that has been sent to numerous other owners of Bovis Homes then passed to an area manager who quite frankly is a waste of oxygen and when I Have contacted him and asked for a home visit sent him emails and left messages on his mobile he doesn't reply to anything totally spineless. That person apparently according to the new CEO has his full authority to help! Rotten to the core and absolute joke and the laughing stock to the building industry. I bet Barretts and Taylor Wimpey love having Bovis about because they make them look so much better. 2 star builder 1 star management.

had the whole rear double glazing replaced outside patio relayed had missing tiles replaced had holes left in walls filled had the guttering replaced had the toilet and shower to the ensuite blocked had a 12 month boiler seals replaced as they were leaking had electric wires coming out of the wall in the kitchen. Whats left to do I have upstairs floors that feel
