The benefits of an AMC Standard Loan

AMC’s Standard Loan allows you to borrow from £25,001 upwards. When we help you access this finance, you will receive a swift response on your funding proposal. You will also benefit from:

  • Competitive mortgage rates, with interest-only and repayment options available or a blend of both, on a variable or fixed rate basis*
  • Rates can be set for the life of the agreement, unlike many other secured loans or overdraft agreements
  • No annual reviews or the need to see annual accounts – we leave you alone to get on with the business of farming 
  • No early repayment charges for variable rate loans
  • Finance secured against land as well as property to help you increase the capital you can raise
  • Loans and mortgage agreements can be transferred to the next generation
  • Access to AMC's experienced and knowledgeable support teams who understand the sector's unique funding needs
  • Funding decisions that can be approved in principal before you make a sealed bid or go to auction

Please note that the above are subject to AMC credit criteria and your obligations to AMC continuing to be met.

* There is always a possibility that interest rates may go down leaving a fixed rate loan at a higher level compared to a variable rate loan. However, if interest rates rise, a fixed rate loan will remain at the same rate.

Your Words, Not Ours

I wanted to thank you very much for all your guidance and help you have given us in getting the approval for the new dwelling on the farm. It is very good news. Your help and input has been the key factor to us getting planning permission.

We found Symonds and Sampson refreshing to deal with, agents we could actually talk to. They took their time to fully understand the market and we used them across many of our storage locations in Somerset. They were professional and knew their industry as well as the whole valuation process. We would happily use them again and recommend them.

We both really appreciate the work you have put in to get the Agricultural Tie lifted. You deserve a GOLD medal

Thank you for all your hardwork sorting out the BPS and ELS/HLS claims and issues over the past couple of months, much appreciated by the team

James was very helpful and extremely professional as well as being most approachable. I’m so pleased I came to ask you for your help and am very grateful for it.
