Sale and Purchase of Care Homes

At Business Lawyers Direct we have years of experience in dealing with the buying and selling of care homes all over the country. Our team understand the key issues involved in this very specific kind of property deal and work with sellers and buyers.

Our approach is designed to make dealing with purchases and sales as simple and hassle-free as possible. Our clients are assigned with one, focused legal professional from start to finish, capable of cutting through the jargon, giving simple and transparent information and advice.

Care homes come in all shapes and sizes; we can deal with the buying and selling of:

  • Care Homes
  • Care Homes with Nursing
  • Specialist Care Homes
  • Retirement Homes
  • Sheltered Housing
  • Close Care Retirement Properties - Assisted living

The care sector is regulated by the Care Quality Commission and this means any sale or purchase must adhere to stringent legislation.

We can guide you through the transaction process, ensure a deal is all above board, and provide expert advice along the way.

Buying a Care Home

There is much to consider when buying a care home and we can deal with every aspect of the process, including:

  • Registering with the Care Quality Commission ? no longer correct
  • Criminal record checks for staff
  • Fee payments
  • The gathering of relevant information - including salaries, holidays, disciplinary records

We focus on the whole picture; so along with the financial aspects of a deal, we can help ensure that the relevant service agreements are in place, which means that a broken-down lift or other cosmetic issues need not derail the buying process.

Selling a Care Home

The selling of a care home can also be complex, but the right legal guidance from Business Lawyers Direct can help make it simple.

We approach all care home sales on a bespoke basis; generally speaking, we begin by chatting to our client's accountant about key issues such as tax.

Following this we deal with the following:

  • Staff issues (holidays, salaries)
  • Resident issues (fees etc)
  • Equipment hire agreements
  • Maintenance agreements
