Commercial property solicitors advise on care group’s office premises

The commercial property team at Birchall Blackburn Law, has advised on the lease of offices in Southport for one of the UK’s fastest growing healthcare providers.

Kare Plus is one of the largest providers of high quality care and support services for private healthcare settings including; hospitals, nursing homes and local councils. It is also a nursing recruitment specialist, providing health care staff to a range of organisations across the UK.

The company’s 1,400 sq ft offices, located at 31-33 Hoghton Street in the heart of Southport were secured by partner at Birchall Blackburn Law, Tony Coates. They will provide space to offer training, recruitment services and administration of carers in the community.

Kare Plus’ arrival to Southport brings with it 200 job vacancies which will be split into two areas, creating roles in both residential home care and the private sector. The company aims to supply 2,000 hours of care by the end of 2017.

Tony Coates, partner and head of commercial property at BB Law, said: “This lease required a quick turnaround and we are proud to have delivered on all levels. It’s pleasing to see such an integrated service launch in Southport and the new premises will allow Kare Plus to continue to develop and grow within the care service sector.

“Southport benefits from a healthy commercial property market. We offer key support for local businesses to grow due to our long-established expertise in this area and it’s clear that there is a real demand for this type of legal provision.

Managing Director of Kare Plus, Jo Boardman (pictured), said: “Kare Plus is renowned for being the caring company and that status is at the heart of everything we do, whether it’s training staff, liaising with key partners or ensuring residents in the community are supported the way we would want to be cared for ourselves.

“We saw Southport as having huge potential because there are very few care providers in the area able to offer this level of service all under one roof.”

Jo added: “The team at BB Law helped us achieve the almost impossible, turning around a detailed commercial lease in less than 10 days from start to finish. We are delighted with the firm’s professionalism and look forward to working with them again.
