The Halifax business has completed the acquisition of Park View Nursing Home for £670,000 from liquidators. Lee Mount Healthcare also owns Lee Mount Care Home in the town.
Park View Nursing Home is a large residential home, with a capacity of 43 beds to support older people, including those with physical disabilities and sensory impairment.
Bevan Brittan’s team supported Lee Mount Healthcare on several parts of the acquisition, providing advice on the property, planning and regulatory aspects of the deal.

“This exciting transition will provide us with the scope to touch more lives positively and to enhance our activity-based care model. Planned features include a variety of facilities like a gym, cinema room, music room, arts and crafts zones, wildlife sanctuaries, and much more.
