“When I purchased my practice, I worked with two representatives – Katrina Graham from Dental Elite for the acquisition process and Josh Lane from DE Finance,” says Adrian Vasile who recently bought a practice in Sheffield.
“Having an agent as an intermediary between myself, my solicitor and the other party and to act on my behalf was very helpful, especially when it came to my solicitor who tried to add on additional charges.
“Securing finance was also relatively straightforward and Josh was very helpful in talking me through my options – not to mention exceptionally communicative and professional.
“All in all, I had a good experience and it is for that reason that my advice to future buyers wouldn't be in regard to the intricacies of the acquisition, but with the nature of buying itself. If you want to buy, invest in a bigger practice with a bigger contract. There are plenty of opportunities and the banks seem willing to lend at present so don't just settle for a smaller practice.”
