  • Property purchase
  • Investment in buildings, improvements, livestock, machinery and equipment
  • Housing development and land promotion
  • Development appraisals
  • Restructuring of family assets and businesses including partnerships and companies


The Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (AMC) has over 80 years' experience in providing farm finance and is positive and keen to support farming businesses wherever possible. AMC's brief encompasses traditional farming businesses as well as diversification opportunities, agri-businesses and other ventures in the countryside.

The main part of our business with AMC remains the restructuring of existing borrowing (hire purchase, leasing, overdraft, trade credit etc) and putting these into a single loan which many clients find much easier to manage.

Symonds & Sampson LLP and the AMC, for whom we act as agents, are used to assisting farmers and growers on a strictly confidential basis, with a view to seeing the business grow from a solid base and on the best terms available. Symonds & Sampson often closely link their role with the client's accountants and solicitors.

If you are wondering whether AMC will support your venture, please contact us and we will be happy to advise on a strictly confidential and no obligation basis.

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 have enjoyed a successful working relationship with Symonds and Sampson stretching over some 20 years in both acquiring development sites and the successful marketing of our completed homes. Working across different departments and offices, we have always found everyone to highly supportive, experienced professionals with exceptional knowledge of the industry. We very much look forward to continuing our partnership and hope to be working on many more projects together in the future.

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 have dealt with Andy Wakinshaw of Symonds & Sampson for 15 years or so for the sale of our residential properties and cannot fault the level of service and expert advice throughout the process. We have also benefitted from purchasing at Auction for development from purchasing at Auction for development land to extend our portfolio, the service was excellent.
