From Monday 4th April 2016 Mortgages for Business will move its headquarters 15 miles east of its current location in Sevenoaks to the business park at Kings Hill near Maidstone, Kent.
The firm has signed a lease on 8,572 sq ft of recently refurbished office space at 17 Kings Hill Avenue, along the main thoroughfare next to David Lloyd Leisure and a short walk to the shops and cafes of Liberty Square.
Commenting on the proposed move, David Whittaker, managing director said:
“We have been in Sevenoaks for well over 10 years but are now bursting at the seams with no room to expand. We chose Kings Hill because it has the services, space and parking we need today and in the future.
“The new office will allow us to expand as the economy grows in the years ahead leading to greater opportunities for us all. It is also very convenient for many of our staff and will mean a shorter commute for those who live in Maidstone and Medway.”
The building at 17 Kings Hill Avenue has just been refurbished to a very high standard by developer Liberty Property Trust.
Grey Interiors has been contracted to fit out the office as they have a reputation for delivering a high-quality finish, on budget and on time.
Mortgages for Business will be joining a number of other financial services companies on the park including Barclays, Cabot, Marsh, Arthur J Gallagher and Sterling Insurance.
Andrew Blevins, managing director of Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust said:
“We are delighted that Mortgages for Business is moving here in order to accommodate its projected expansion and will benefit from being able to source some of its new staff from our growing residential population.”
Kings Hill is a 24-hour live, work, play community, providing jobs, amenities, homes, schools and other community infrastructure all within walking distance.
Amenities include an 18-hole golf course, Waitrose and Asda stores plus other convenience retail, three schools, sports park, cricket pitch and two gyms including David Lloyd, acres of woodland and open space and many miles of foot and cycle paths.
There are around 200 businesses on site employing some 5,000 people and, with more than 8,000 residents at Kings Hill too, there is a ready workforce on the doorstep.
