Transitioning or Selling my Practice

Are you planning to transition or sell your veterinary practice in the next 5-10 years?

Don’t wait until you’re in the latter stages of your career to begin thinking about your veterinary practice transition. Having spent over 20 years representing veterinarians, we have experienced many unfortunate instances where landlords become roadblocks to practice sales and greatly diminish practice value.

Start preparing at least 10 years ahead of your planned transition by setting up your office lease properly. Thoroughly review it for risks and have the right negotiation strategy in place to secure a lease that will support your risk-free and peaceful exit out of veterinary health.

Selling a Veterinary Practice: What You Need to Know

  • Are there clauses in your current veterinary office lease that will reduce the value of your practice in the eyes of the buyer due to the risks they present? Ex. ‘Relocation’ or ‘Demolition’ clauses.
  • Does your lease have the proper amount of term and/or “options to renew” left to support the purchase price you’re looking for? ‘Term’ is a key component for anyone buying a veterinary practice and financing acquisitions through banks.
  • Does your lease include terms that positively support a new veterinarian, like expansion rights, death and disability rights, and “use” clause protection?
  • Is your lease transferable to a future buyer, and can the landlord interfere with the transfer of your lease?
