In West Kent lies Sevenoaks, a town which also gives its name to the surrounding Sevenoaks district where the towns of Swanley and Edenbridge lie. An attractive place to reside in, in the last 12 months reallymoving has helped 262 people move to the area. Sevenoaks is the most historically important areas in Kent and is home to important English landmarks, such as Knole House. One of the largest houses in Britain built around 1446, and surrounded by the 1,000 acres of Knole Park, it was owned by various early modern royalty and nobility alike, including Henry VIII.
Although it’s unlikely you’ll be buying any property in the area as big as Knole House, there are still plenty of old properties, and over 190 buildings in Sevenoaks are listed buildings. Kent was a former hub for old Tudor-style buildings, so is full of houses that are in special need of a Chartered Surveyor to carry out a Building Survey to ensure that the property is structurally sound. Getting the right Chartered Surveyor can therefore save a lot of time and money in the future, and reallymoving only works with RICS regulated, locally trusted and professional surveyors who will be able to provide both Building Surveys and HomeBuyer Reports.
