Mortgages and Finance for Starting a Farm

Mortgages and Finance for Starting a Farm

Do you aspire to live in the country, where your partner will continue to work and you want to run a smallholding or are you starting a farm business?

Farm and Country Finance often receives enquiries from customers who want to start a farm and we have the ideal farm loan for this type of scenario, whether short or long term.

Mortgages and Finance for Starting a Farm
The typical thing we come across is one where the customer has other income from, say, an employed partner and the farm business cannot fund the farm loan on its own – we find that some lenders are tetchy about this.

Obtaining such farm finance can be difficult especially where accounting information may not be good enough for the banks.

You may qualify for finance on a long-term basis through us, but we also have a great new farm loan product that fits the bill for a farm start-up.

A new farm loan product

Farm and Country Finance is pleased to announce it has a new rural loan product designed with start-ups in mind, where farm finance is required or where there is a need to create or repair a credit profile before refinancing elsewhere. The loan term is for up to three years, so it beats farm bridging finance hands down. The lender will consider extensions to this as long as the customers are making progress towards an exit. Rates are very competitive and early settlement interest is very low with none payable in the last twelve months. The lender is incredibly flexible on income proof and takes projected income into account.

It’s a fantastic deal for farm finance for start-ups and our customers are already benefiting from it. It means that you can have access to capital for your farm start-up, get some trading history under your belt and then move it on to a traditional source of farm finance.
