Commercial Mortgages for Pharmacies and Dental Practices

Lenders tend to be confident in the medical sector – pharmacies, dental practices and GP surgeries are all considered ‘Green Light’ sectors therefore, funding is generally available to both first-time buyers and experienced operators. The skill is securing the best finance packages to match your unique requirements.

Competition to acquire these businesses can be extremely high and demand generally outstrips supply – particularly in the case of pharmacies and dental practices. If you are a locum pharmacist or associate dentist looking to buy your own business, having a sound business plan and the right finance in place will give you the edge.
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 delivering financing into 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, 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 340 independent pharmacy or dental practices currently for sale, with new businesses added regulary.
