Conveyancing in Kent
Buying a house in Kent
One of the home counties, Kent is situated in South East England. The county shares borders with Essex, East Sussex and Greater London, with the English Channel coastline to its east. The strong transport connections to London means large parts of Kent are within the London commuter belt. Its population stands at some 1.83 million residents, meaning you’ll find excellent variety among the properties available for purchase in the region. At My Home Move Conveyancing, we’ve been operating within markets like Kent’s since 2001, giving us the experience we need to bring our clients an exceptional conveyancing service.
Kent’s economy is greatly diversified: haulage, logistics and tourism are major industries. In northwest Kent, industries include extraction of aggregate building materials, printing and scientific research. Coal mining has also played its part in Kent’s industrial heritage. Large parts of Kent are within the London commuter belt and its strong transport connections to the capital and the nearby continent make Kent a high-income county.
When you choose My Home Move Conveyancing, you’ll do so safe in the knowledge that our award winning customer service, innovative use of technology and understanding of the local market will ensure things go as smoothly as they can for you.
For every client, we assign them a dedicated conveyancer of their own, who will act as a regular and consistent point of contact throughout the process. This works in conjunction with an online account, where you can view updates on your purchase or sale at a time that suits you. Through our marker-leading and professional service, we’re able to deliver more annual completions than any other conveyancer, because we get things right first time round. We’re proud to provide our conveyancing in Kent throughout the region, including towns such as Maidstone, Canterbury and Royal Tunbridge Wells.

The local area
Bordering London to the north west, East Sussex to the south west and Surrey to the west, it’s no surprise Kent is in an incredibly popular location for commuters to the capital. It sits on one side of the Thames estuary, downstream from London, with lots of coastline fronting the English Channel. The area has a long and rich history, with evidence of Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman era occupations – while the area’s most famous landmarks include the beautiful Canterbury Cathedral. The region is renowned for its fruit-growing and hop gardens, which have helped it earn its ‘garden’ title.
The M20 motorway runs through the middle of the county and provides fast access to the capital, with the M25 crossing into Kent at its far north west. There’s an expansive network of local railways that serve towns in the area, including Maidstone and Canterbury, while Channel Tunnel services at Folkstone mean the continent is on your doorstep. The most conveniently located airport for residents of Kent is Gatwick Airport, a short drive from Royal Tunbridge Wells. Other popular towns in the region include Beckenham, Bromley, Gravesend, Rainham and Sevenoaks.
There are a huge number of primary and secondary schools throughout the county, both state and independent, while higher education options include The University of Kent.
