When buying or selling a business, it pays to have focused commercial insight into every aspect of the transaction. At Elliot Mather, we have a particularly strong involvement in the healthcare sector, regularly acting for buyers, sellers and bank funders of nursing home properties and business and offering accessible guidance on the regulations these businesses must adhere to.
Our instructions range from single homes to groups of properties, comprising of up to 30 separate residential care homes. Our client base in this area is varied and far reaching, and we often act for national banks and clients overseas.
Recently, we have seen a trend towards building new care homes and we have advised on a number of multi-million pound new build developments, in particular on behalf of banks in overseeing contractual and collateral warranty arrangements.
We also benefit from experience of a growing trend in this sector, namely the leasing of capital assets in order to fund the future growth of the business.
Enjoying a good working relationship with many of the leading funders, brokers and agents who are active in this business sector, we can smooth the path to sale or purchase for any client as well as deliver incisive, commercially-minded guidance and support.
This sector is heavily regulated by the Care Quality Commission. We offer informed advice and guidance on the myriad of employment and other issues that might arise from regulation, both during operations and in the course of a sale or purchase, such as the transfer of employees, business warranties and the claiming of capital allowances.
