PLEASE avoid buying the homes built by BOVIS for your peace of mind. Defects in plumbing, caused by poor workmanship or poor material, which do not immediately fail are your problem down the line. plumbing joints are supposed to last but with BOVIS they only need to last until the 2 year warrantyy runs out. Dont even think about the NCHB as a solution as they only get involved if there is a structural problem like subsidence or a wall falls off. NCHB doesnt cover plumbing which has been put together incorrectly. BOVIS homes mke a big noise about how their homes are covered by NCHB but is reality it is useless as it doesnt cover the vast majority of the problems a BOVIS homes house buyer will face.
Instead a home buyer needs to claim on their own home insurance to have damage repaired when something fails.

It seems that contractors used by BOVIS do not have their work checked by anyone from BOVIS site management. as a result pipe joints in my BOVIS home are failing. BOVIS customer care when presented with photohgraphic evidence just really do not care and state even though the workmnship is poor it lasted over two years before failure (their warranty period) so they will not do anything to rectify the defect. instead they suggest it is a house insurance issue.

The problem owners face is when they try to sell. BOVIS homes now have a very poor reputation which reduces the value of the property. I know writing reviews like this do not help me but maybe it will help someone else avoid BOVIS homes.
