Rochester is a very historic city and the major urban area that makes up the ‘Medway Towns’ at the mouth of the River Medway, which include Chatham and Gillingham. With a stunning cathedral and castle in the city, a lovely town centre, and trains to London only taking 40 minutes, it is no wonder Rochester is such a popular place to live, very popular with commuters as well as those who want a life closer to the coast. In the last year alone up to June 2016, reallymoving has helped over 330 people move into the area.
As a historic town, Rochester has plenty of old buildings which still survive to this day, including Rochester School, the 2nd oldest school in the world built in 604. Although the property you’re purchasing won’t be as old as this, if your property is old enough to have experienced structural damage or may not have modern piping or wiring, it is definitely worth getting a Building Survey to ensure that the property is safe to move into and the structure of it is sound. If you are buying a fairly new and conventionally built property your house will only need a HomeBuyer Report.
With reallymoving you’ll save time finding the best Chartered Surveyor and you’ll be moved into the area in no time. Whether visiting the cathedral, Rochester or Upnor Castle, or going shopping in the town centre, there is plenty to do in the area.
