Corporate team advises on sale of Stratford care home
Our corporate team have assisted with the sale of Hylands House care home, in Stratford-upon-Avon, to Imperial Care Group Ltd, a family-run healthcare business in London.
Hyland House provides high-quality support and respite facilities to vulnerable people, specialising in dementia care. The home has space for up to 19 residents, with the building originally a residential home, then a hotel, before its final transformation into a care home in the late 1980s.
Staff are dedicated to giving residents care of the highest standard in a comfortable setting, encouraging them to create a supportive community, where relatives, staff and friends are considered as extended family. Imperial Care Group Ltd plans to continue this approach, becoming part of the family themselves.
We advised Hyland House on all legal matters of the sale, including corporate, property, employment and tax.
Andrew Smith, corporate partner and head of our Stratford-upon-Avon office, said: “We love working with family-owned businesses of all sizes and in many different sectors, and we’ve been developing a strong relationship with the Hylands team over a number of years. We knew that when they made the difficult decision to sell, it was essential that we provided them with hands-on support and legal expertise to help them navigate safely through the sale process.
“It was an emotional moment when it came to completion, but this is a fantastic opportunity for the new owner to take on a well-established business and continue expanding its excellent care services in the local Stratford area.”
Fiona Roebuck, former managing director at Hylands House, said: “Andrew and the team at Shakespeare Martineau were wonderfully helpful in the sale process. They understood how difficult the decision was to sell at all and removed as much of the stress as possible.
“Residents and their families can be reassured that the new owner is keen to continue to provide the same high standard of care in a family-like setting.”
Kashif Munir, director at Hylands House, said: “I am ecstatic to take over Hylands House which is an important part of the Stratford community. My objective will be to deliver best-in-class care, which has always been the ethos here. I am looking forward to building on current and new relationships and ensuring that Hylands continues building on its legacy.”
