Caxtons Chartered Surveyors has been selected by Locate in Kent and Kent County Council's Economic & Spatial Development Division to partner them to produce the annual Kent Property Market Report for the next three years.
The Kent-based firm will research the annual publication, which reviews activity and major deals in the county's commercial and residential property sectors.
The report, which is in its 22nd year, is the definitive guide on the state of the property market and is used to help attract investment into Kent and Medway. Caxtons takes over from Cluttons LLP who, together with KCC and Locate in Kent, were founding partners.
Researchers at Caxtons will now start analysing property performance in Kent during 2012/13, including an overview of the county's property market, and a detailed review of the business park, office, industrial, retail and residential sectors.
They will also work closely with Locate in Kent and KCC to collate data about the year's regeneration projects and inward investment successes.
Neil Chatterton, Managing Director, Caxtons Chartered Surveyors
Caxtons’ Managing Director, Neil Chatterton, said: "Caxtons has consistently demonstrated a strong, local and subject knowledge, providing quality, specialist, property help, advice and practical assistance to thousands of owners, investors and businesses across Kent.
"We are delighted that our strong local knowledge and expertise has been recognised by Locate in Kent and Kent County Council, and that they have asked us to partner them in the Kent Property Market Report.
"It's a really exciting time for Caxtons to be getting involved with the project. Last year continued to be challenging for the economy and the property market, but there were some exciting developments taking place that have put Kent in a very favourable position to see growth in specific sectors.
"Over the next six months our consultants and researchers will be gathering relevant data for analysis to compile the report."
Caxtons will also sponsor the official launch of the 2013 Kent Property Market Report, which will be held on Thursday 17 October 2013, at Discovery Park, Sandwich.
