Secured Lending & Financial Planning

Consider where you will obtain finance and what sort of valuation will be required

Secured lending may be required to facilitate:

  • 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

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.

Well it all went through this week due in no small part to your excellent and swift survey thank you

Thank you very much for the report and your sound advice. And to Sarah for organising the survey so quickly. I am so grateful to have the facts to make an informed decision and have gone back to the estate agents to re-negotiate.

Excellent service from Ryan and if we need a valuation again, we will 100% be using him

A huge part of the success of the Managing Agent role is directly related to establishing and maintaining sound and effective procedures and having a trusted and available central contact point for shareholders, that is where you fit in….. Thanks to your (largely) unseen work in the background, the implementation of a brand new managing agency facility for three very different MANCOs and in the teeth of a Global pandemic has been remarkably smooth.

On behalf of ..... Farms I would just like to thank you for all your input in securing planning consent with a detailed set of plans drawn up in a very professional way
