How we can help

There is a number of legal challenges that typically present themselves to care home owners and employees, and are here to help with anything that may crop up, including the below:

CQC inspections

Intervention by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) - at whatever level - can be a short road to losing residents and profitability, and eventually closure or a forced sale. 

However, we can provide the legal advice and representation you need in the event of a CQC inspection or enforcement action surrounding alleged breaches of regulations.

Property sales and purchases

We have many years of experience advising on sales and purchases, as well as providing advice to businesses seeking to increase bed capacity. 

We can help you navigate all aspects of property law, including:

  • Leases
  • Acquisitions
  • Sales
  • Refinancing
  • Restructuring

Employment law

 We can also assist with staff employment issues, including:

  • Constructive dismissal
  • Breach of contract
  • TUPE and the outsourcing of contracts
  • Discrimination claims
  • Allegations and accusations from care home residents

Investment advice

In addition, we have provided advice to lenders and investors, including a major bank. 

We can assist with legal issues relating to: 

  • Deeds of priority
  • Funding for care home developments
  • Security and guarantees
  • Group reorganisations

Resident support 

Our specialist solicitors can also provide expert legal advice to residents of care homes, if required, on topics such as: 

  • Wills and probate
  • Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Inheritance tax planning
