David Ward, Senior Director at Christie Finance brokered the funding to secure the business and comments, “‘It was a pleasure working with Ramesh again for the purchase of his seventh care home. Having knowledge of and access to the whole of the market meant that we were able to find the right lender to match Ramesh’s requirements. Working with Charles to project manage the purchase, we were able to overcome a number of legal hurdles to allow the completion to take place. I wish Ramesh every success with this latest addition to his group.”
