Construction ‘scandal’ shines light on decline in housing quality


A recent scandal involving a national housebuilder has further shone a light on the pressures put on firms to meet the government’s housing targets. Bovis Homes is to pay £7m to repair poorly built homes sold to customers. Bovis, who built almost 4,000 homes last year, is accused of knowingly selling homes that had problems including faulty plumbing, no guttering and half-finished tiling. The revelations raise questions about the quality of new-build developments nationwide and regulation of the market. Michele Wietscher, Director of Newview Windows & Conservatories, comments: “There is a genuine need for more housing but we need to ensure it is of good quality. Buying a house is a big investment and it’s evident some people are being sold the dream and getting a nightmare. There needs to be stricter and more transparent building regulations and people should be given the right to inspect their home prior to buying, to ensure they are getting quality accommodation.”
