Commercial Mortgages for Care Homes

In recent years, interest in the care-home sector has surged among both first-time buyers and experienced operators, not least because of the attractive returns it can offer to owner-operators.

The number of people requiring care – be it residential, elderly care, or specialised healthcare provision – will undoubtedly continue to rise, and demand is already exceeding supply in some areas.

There are various factors to consider when looking to acquire in the sector – the requirements of the Care Quality Commission, for example – and we at Christie Finance will provide you with the most appropriate advice at every stage of the financing process.

As an independent broker, Christie Finance is not tied to any particular lender. We have established and trust-based relationships with the leading lending institutions. We know which ones are financing the care sector, and whom to approach to get the best deal for you.

Whether you are a first-time operator intending to take over an existing business, or you’d like to extend a premises you already own, or grow your portfolio, Christie Finance will help you get the funding you need.

Key considerations
When you are thinking about buying a business there are various things that both you and a potential lender will need to consider:

  • Experience – do you have the right level of experience to run the business? How will you run it?

  • Performance – how well is the business doing? Is it in a good location? Is there enough profit in the business to be able to repay a loan easily and allow you to take enough out of the business for yourself?

  • Contribution – what are you able to invest in the business (savings, other properties, etc.)?

  • Personal history – do you have a clear credit history?

Christie & Co have over 102 independent care businesses currently for sale, with new businesses added regulary.
