Commercial Negotiator James Squire who works in Caxtons' Maidstone offices said "Commercial sector property, whether for sale or to rent, has been more buoyant in recent months than for some time. There is no particular pattern to the type, size or location of property, it seems there is just more impetus from buyers, sellers and tenants – whether starting out on the property ladder or expanding."
Two particular properties that have changed hands in the first quarter of this year demonstrate that it is not just in the big towns that things are moving.
A new 20-year full repairing and insuring lease was agreed in February on an end of terrace two-storey brick-built property in Meopham. The premises comprise a ground floor commercial unit and first floor offices with car parking at the rear of the property.
James continued: "At first glance these may not seem earth shattering deals, but it does demonstrate that there is positive activity across the entire property market in Kent."
