HCB Solicitors offers a dedicated legal advice service to the care sector. From single independent homes to care home chains and supported living organisations, our specialist lawyers can offer the understanding and expertise needed to assist with all the legal aspects of setting up, buying, running or selling a business in this sector.

Buying and Selling a Care Home

Our specialist care home lawyers have extensive experience in advising on the buying and selling of care homes, along with shareholder agreements and all aspects of partnerships. We can advise on how best to finance the purchase of a care home and what to do if you wish to extend or build a new care home. Our property law experts are also on hand to lend their detailed knowledge of leases and property acquisition and disposal.

Taking Care of Staff

Employees are perhaps the most valuable asset of a care home.  It is therefore vital to have a strong framework in place to ensure common issues in the care sector such as high staff turnover, claims of unfair dismissal and employment tribunals are avoided. HCB Solicitors has extensive experience in dealing with the drafting or updating of employment contracts. We can also advise on the specific health and safety legislation relating to this sector, such as people handling, and work proactively to ensure risk is minimised and costly claims avoided.

Should a care home proprietor face investigation by the Care Standards Tribunal or other regulatory body, HCB can offer expert advice and guidance, and full representation at any hearing.

  • Care Home Law
  • Professional Regulation and Registration
  • CQC Requirements
  • Commercial Contracting
  • Incorporation and LLP Formation
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Employment Law
