UK Agricultural Finance is a specialist business lender to the agricultural sector that offers traditional, responsible lending to farmers throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

Their team knows rural property and rural businesses, the many challenges they face, but also their appeal. They visit all their potential borrowers before making a loan and have a very responsive underwriting process that works quickly and reliably.

They understand how to craft a business loan against agricultural property where a ‘one size fits all’ doesn’t work. They pride ourselves on working with the leading experts in agricultural valuation, security and restructuring to ensure swift informed and fair decisions.

They are a principal lender and are committed to responsible lending, by always acting with integrity and delivering on time, every time. They have a pragmatic and flexible approach, with borrowers able to talk directly to the lending decision makers.

Their loans have helped farmers diversify, acquire more land, build renewable energy projects, helped them restructure, buy more livestock, help families with generational transfer and provide tenant farmers capital to purchase their farm.

UK Agricultural Finance completes £1.2 million bridge loan

UK Agricultural Finance recently completed a complex £1.2 million bridge loan to assist a farmer acquiring almost 500 acres of neighbouring farmland and buildings.

UKAF worked with the borrower’s accountants, who presented an excellent case for the borrower, as the farmer required finance to buy the land, but wanted the ability to quickly sell some land for residential development, convert many of the outbuildings for residential use and then sell them, in addition to parcelling up some of the land into smaller lots to sell on at an attractive price to other neighbours, to reduce his loan.

With over a dozen different titles plus outstanding Section 106 commitments, the farmer required a sophisticated but pragmatic lender, that could work with him to realistically assess the value of the farmland and ensure he secured the finance needed. Fortunately, UKAF is one of the few specialist lenders in the UK able to provide short and medium-term finance to farmers and their expertise ensured the farmer secured a high-quality bridge loan at an attractive interest rate significantly lower than the market norm.

Louise Old, Head of Business Development for the North East at UK Agricultural Finance said, “Working within a specialist rural and agricultural team that prides itself on face to face underwriting allows us the time to meet farmers and understand the nuances of the particular opportunity to provide responsible, informed underwriting decisions.”
