Recent Sales

The Old VicarageThe Old Vicarage, Askam in Furness, Cumbria - Reg 30

DC Care has completed the sale of The Old Vicarage Care Home, in Askam 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 Willoughby 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."



Field House Rest HomeField House, Clent, Stourbridge, Worcestershire - Reg 54

In what proved to be their busiest month ever in terms of completed sales, DC Care was delighted to finalise the acquisition of Field House Rest Home located in Clent, Stoubridge to experienced care operators Blackadder Corporation.

DC Care was instructed by the owners Mr and Mrs Lane to sell the Grade II* listed home as a genuine retirement sale having originally purchased the home themselves in the early 1970’s. Set in approximately 10 acres of grounds this particularly attractive care home is well known in the area and enjoys an excellent reputation.

After a somewhat protracted sale process, DC Care's Andy Sandel commented; "It may have taken longer than the average time to sell a care home, over 2 years in fact, but we never gave up and in the end this was possibly one of the most satisfying completions I’ve been involved with."

CARE BUSINESS SEARCH...

"Thank you so much for your assistance in the sale of Adelaide House. For several years prior to the sale you had kindly given very sound appraisals of market conditions which enabled us to optimise the time of sale. Having taken instructions and after a discreet visit you were able to provide a realistic valuation, but then more significantly, and very much to our advantage were able to find a purchaser without formally putting the Home on the market. It was a great relief not to have a stream of potential purchasers looking round the home which I'm sure would have led to suspicions from the staff. As it was, when it came to exchange of contracts, no one other than our manager who had been briefed from the outset, was aware of the sale. In the meantime you had guided us smoothly through the dealings with the solicitors and the CQC. So a very big thank you to yourself and your highly efficient and competent assistant Clare for a truly professional service in selling our Home."

David Sutton, Adelaide House
