Womble Bond Dickinson has advised on the sale of Carntyne Residential Care Home in Hexham, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in Sunderland, to Resolve Care.
The sale includes 19-bed property in the centre of Hexham, founded as a Care Home in 1990 following a request to the Sisters by the late Roman Catholic Bishop Hugh Lindsay. It is located close to the Sele Park in the centre of the town and also has its own extensive private grounds.
Resolve Care provides residential care for male adults with learning disabilities, some who also have autism, in two rural setting homes.
WBD advised The Sisters of Mercy with the disposal of the home to health entrepreneur Elaine Reay through her consultancy Resolve Care. Partner and Head of Charities Emma Moody (Picture) managed the transaction following her team’s longstanding relationship with the Sisters, with Corporate Solicitor David Ridley advising on the sale. Finance lawyer Kirsty Lienard and Real Estate Solicitor Thomas Welch also provided support on the finance and property front.
