Private Practice Opportunity in Nelson

Counselling and Psychology is an established practice with a good name, presence and well set-up rooms for a small group of professionals.
The opportunity exists for a practitioner or group of practitioners to take over the rooms and to quickly establish themselves in Nelson. Availability will be subject to negotiation of suitable lease terms.
There are two consulting rooms and all facilities are purpose built. Additional sound proofing was installed at the time of constructing the room partitions, and security considerations incorporated.
Consideration $15,000. The price accounts for a portion of what it would cost to set-up now and includes most furniture and filing cabinets, along with the Counselling and Psychology name, which has 25 years good standing. Potential earnings from goodwill inclusive in the price.
Excellent location, with good street presence. Other health practices in the same building.
Details on running costs are available along with income that is generated from subletting to other practitioners, facilitating a flexible lifestyle.
