Buying or Selling a Funeral Home


Owners of businesses and their staff are being affected by the closure of many nonessential businesses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The UK government has deemed certain businesses as ‘essential’ and they have been permitted to continue trading during the lockdown, which includes the funeral services sector. If you are looking for advice regarding purchasing, selling or leasing a funeral home, we are available to talk.


Whether you are a funeral director who is looking to expand your business or looking to sell your business. Kaiser Solicitors are here to help business owners and prospective buyers negotiate contracts during the unusual circumstances we all find ourselves in today. 


Should I Buy a Funeral Home?


Funeral directors are an essential part of any society. Even during these days of social distancing and the national lockdown people still need to lay their loved ones to rest. Now more than ever families deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and funeral directors are always on hand to lend advice giving the care and attention to our loved one’s final wishes. 


Going into the funeral business requires empathy alongside a stoic nature. The customer must be supported throughout the process, and it is a funeral director’s role to ensure their client is looked after.


Funeral directors are resistant to recession because they perform an extremely important and invaluable role, which is part of the backbone of society. Buying an existing business may be a simpler route, with lower overall costs if the purchase includes staff, equipment, customers and premises already being set up


If you are looking to sell or lease out your funeral home, it is worth contacting an experienced solicitor to help decide what will be included, and how this should be represented in the lease or purchase price.


Buying, selling, or leasing a business is a huge undertaking and it can be quite stressful, especially if it is the first time you have done it. Experienced business owners and entrepreneurs understand the importance of instructing a trustworthy and experienced firm of solicitors.
