HM Forces Bovis Homes Offer

At Bovis Homes we understand the unique time pressures that those serving in the armed forces face.

The Armed Forces All Inclusive Discount Scheme has been designed not only to minimise the potential financial outlay of buying a new home, but some of the hassle and hidden costs that go along with it.
This exclusive package includes:

• A price discount of £500 for every £25,000 you spend on a Bovis Home. This equates to 2% of the list price.

• All curtains, carpets and flooring included. This means you won’t need to worry about measuring up, just bring your furniture!

• Bovis Homes will also contribute £500 towards your legal costs (when you use one of our referred independent solicitors).

• As well as all of this, with the Bovis Homes specification you get built-in kitchen appliances (from Hotpoint and Indesit) included in the price as standard. So that’s the hob, oven, fridge freezer, washing machine* and dishwasher* sorted too.
