Royds Withy King leads on sale of two specialist dementia care homes

Law firm Royds Withy King has advised on the sale of two Wiltshire dementia care homes by long-standing client and care provider Equality Care Limited.

Equality Care Limited is a successful family-owned business operating specialist care homes across Wiltshire for over 25 years.

The sale of two homes – Longbridge Deverill House and Longbridge Deverill Nursing Home – was completed during the first week of November 2021.

Longbridge Deverill House is a residential home registered for 20 residents.

Longbridge Deverill Nursing Home is both a residential and nursing home registered for 60 residents, including a specialist unit for individuals with dementia and mental health needs.

The sale of these two homes follows in January 2021 the sale of two further care homes in the group, The Old Vicarage and Staverton House, to Fidelia Care.

Lucy Wilcox, of Equality Care Limited, said: “It is never an easy decision to sell a home, but for over 25 years we have provided the very best homes for our residents and now it is time for us to retire.

“We are delighted to have completed the sale of Longbridge Deverill House and Longbridge Deverill Nursing Home.

“It is a fantastic business sharing the same values as us in building wonderful homes for our residents.”

The Royds Withy King team was led by corporate partner Hazel Phillips, supported by corporate associate Yasmin Qasim, and real estate specialist Dan Pinheiro.

Hazel said: “We are delighted to act on behalf of Equality Care Limited in the sale of these two highly respected homes.

“Lucy and Carole were fantastic to work with and have clearly operated the homes to a very high standard over a long period of time. Their attention to detail and complete preparation for the sale was second to none, which made negotiating the sale much easier.”

Commercial real estate agents Avison Young, led by its healthcare director Tom Harrison, acted as agents.

Tom said: “These are two highly respected care homes with a strong care team, offering outstanding facilities for residents.

“Opportunities to acquire homes such as these in Wiltshire are rare with the appetite from potential buyers high. We look forward to the continued success of these two care homes.”
