Posted on June 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Unique Help Ltd, which operated four care homes in Kent, has been acquired Mr Kan Rajakanthan of Nicholas James Care Homes Ltd. The sale, negotiated by property agents Highland & Co, comprises Beacon Lodge in Herne Bay, Harbledown Lodge in Canterbury, Chestfield House in Chestfield and Whitstable nursing home in Whitstable – with a total registration of 151. Mr Rajakanthan1s company now own nine care homes in Kent and Sussex with a total registration of 279, and it is his intention to continue to expand by means of further acquisitions and development of his existing homes. “This is a major sale,” said Highland & co director Ian Highland. “The most significant aspect from my viewpoint was the good rapport established between the vendor and purchaser as this considerably helped us through the due diligence process, which can be somewhat longwinded with a company disposal.”
