DC Care has completed the sale of The Old Vicarage Care Home, in Askham in Furness, Cumbria. The home, which had been in the owners’ family for over 30 years, is registered for 30 and is set in ample grounds.
The sale was protracted for a number of reasons, but with the help of DC Care, the outgoing owners had a great team around them to see the transaction through. We knew that this transaction required specialist input from experts in the field of healthcare sales and introduced our clients to Joanna Dawson. Joanna was able to advise our clients and ensured they achieved the sale on terms that were right for them. Commenting on the sale, Joanna said “I became involved with the sale relatively late into the proceedings with many key terms still to be agreed. However, by adopting a collaborative approach with the purchasers’ advisors and taking the time to explain the process fully to my clients, we were able to reach an agreement.”
DC Care’s Regional Director Alison Taylor and Senior Negotiator Clare Jones managed the sale on behalf of the vendors and are both delighted that the sale has completed: “We work so closely with our clients and over time, strong relationships are formed. When sales do take a little longer than initially thought, these strong relationships are key. We are so happy to have been able to help the family sell the home and wish them all the very best for the future.”
The vendor is also very happy to see the sale complete and has said: “Both Alison and Clare have been fantastic. They were consistently attentive, understanding and kept in touch right from the very start. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
