Two brothers had run the farm together for many years, but when one brother passed away, an acrimonious family dispute ensued with their non-farming son, who wanted paying out on his inheritance.

In under three weeks we put a loan facility in place that avoided a forced sale, bought out the non-farming son and at the same time allowed the son of the surviving brother to take over the farm.

Our loan was structured to allow the farming son to step-in, partially sell some land to reduce the cost of the loan and then have sufficient time and financial resources to refurbish the deceased brother’s dilapidated cottage, before subsequently financing this via a cheap buy-to-let mortgage that repaid our loan early and penalty free.
