Delphine Court Leased To Specialist Operator

Delphine Court, Cockerton, Co Durham

DC Care is delighted to have completed the lease of Delphine Court, a former residential care home in the village of Cockerton, County Durham.

The property had been a residential care home run by a charity for a number of years, before being bought by our client, Mr G Shaw. Mr Shaw completed a substantial refurbishment of the building and contacted DC Care to find a new operator to lease the property to. DC Care found a specialist operator looking to establish a service in the area, for clients with a range of learning disabilities, in a supported living environment.

Alison Taylor, Specialist Business Appraiser at DC Care handled the instruction and said: "I am delighted that we were able to help Mr Shaw find a suitable tenant for Delphine Court. He was keen to ensure that a reliable operator was found and that the building continued to serve the local community. We found an operator very quickly and terms were agreed."

Mr Shaw commented: "When I met Alison, I was keen to find the right people to operate the home. We are local and it mattered a great deal who we worked with. Alison was professional, knowledgeable and importantly, kept her word. She understood exactly what we were looking for and was able to advise us every step of the way. I am looking forward to working with her again, should the opportunity arise."


"DC Care helped me every step of the way in assisting me in my sale. This territory was alien to me, but DC Care guided me and kept me going right until the end, and went the extra mile for me, which meant so much. Without DC Care and Alison in particular, I don't think it would have been possible... A big thanks!"
