MPL is a private, family run property investment company located in East Kent. Since its creation in 1996 the company has built an extensive property portfolio with a holding of over 100 units. Our main focus has been on the redevelopment and construction of residential and commercial units based in Deal and Folkestone.
Each project is built with the same care, attention and quality to detail that has been running through the company since its inception. Once a development is completed it is added to the portfolio and is fully managed by us. With our headquarters located in Deal we have chosen to stay within an hour’s drive of our properties, so rest assured we are there when you need us.
