Bovis Homes pagherá 7 milioni di sterline per riparare case nuove consegnate agli acquirenti in pessime condizioni di costruzione. Questo dopo una serie di lamentele e minacce di class action da parte delle "vittime" che si sono viste obbligate a completare l'acquisto entrando in possesso di case non ancora finite ed in pessime condizioni.
Bovis Homes is to pay £7m to repair poorly built new homes sold to customers, raising fresh questions about the standards of new-build properties across the country. The company – one of the biggest housebuilders builders in Britain – will pay compensation after angry customers formed a Facebook group accusing Bovis of pressuring them to move in to incomplete houses so it could hit sales targets. The boss of Bovis apologised to customers on Monday for the poor quality of their houses and promised to finish them “to their satisfaction”. He refused to state how many homes needed the urgent repair work, or how much it will cost to fix each house. The company also refused to say which developments were worst affected, but it is understood that many of the problem homes are in Kent.
