Currently there are almost half a million elderly people residing in care homes and this number is expected to rise dramatically. Over the years we have developed a significant expertise in advising businesses and charities who are involved in providing care.

We draw on our expertise in corporate transactions, finance, property, employment, compliance and regulation, and litigation to provide an all-round service to clients involved in the care sector.

We have been involved in a significant number of acquisitions and disposals of residential care home and domiciliary care businesses. We are (and have been for many years) the principal legal adviser to a major independent operator in the South East, during which time its portfolio of properties has expanded substantially.

Recent transactions in this sector involved the acquisition of a property formerly used as a residential hostel, for conversion into a residential care home; the acquisition of a domiciliary care agency, acquiring (with funding) a large care home business for continued operation and further development, restructuring and refinancing a large group of care home businesses; and acquiring residential property for a charity, and the creation of appropriate leases for the charity to grant to disabled individuals to enable them to live independently.

Having been a customer of GBH Law since it was founded, CHD Living has enjoyed expert and tailored legal advice. GBH Law truly understands the needs of family-operated business such as ours, and provides a bespoke service to its clients, always making themselves available to support with short-notice. I would highly recommend GBH Law.
