Agricultural Bridging Loans

At Loan X, we offer agricultural bridging loans so farmers can develop their property and build a successful business.

SINCE 2004

We provide farm finance options

Working in the farming industry is a rewarding role – especially if you enjoy the great outdoors. But for many farmers, the cost of operating their land can be damaging. At Loan X, we offer agricultural bridging loans so farmers can develop their property and build a successful business.

Our loans can be used to purchase more property, invest in livestock and diversify a current agricultural business to new ventures.

Why Secure a Bridging Loan?

Bridging loans get their name from the ability to secure a gap. The short term financing solutions are ideal if you need to secure a loan until a longer-term option is secured.

Many farm finance solutions will allow you to roll up the interest, which means you can use the money received to develop your agricultural business without paying monthly instalments.

The good thing about bridging loans is how they serve as a stop-gap for farming businesses, and while there are some requirements involved in securing your bridging loan, it can be a fantastic option while you’re waiting for a long term solution.

Quicker Decisions

Bridging loans are designed to provide financial relief during a stop-gap, so it makes sense that they’re usually processed relatively quickly. While traditional banks can offer loans, they’ll often take weeks to process the information, which isn’t exactly helpful if you need the money.

Our team of financial specialists can review your loan quickly, which enables you to secure the money to get your development underway.


Bridge loans offer flexible uses, and the repayment options are usually a lot better than traditional bank financing. We’ll work with you to agree upon terms that suit your individual circumstances. Our bridge loans can help you to grow your business and diversify your property portfolio.

You can use our loans to:


  • Purchase a farm property. This could be an existing building or a self-build project to create more living space.
  • Development and refurbish your property – both residential and commercial buildings are included.
  • Buying extra parcels of land.
  • Investing in new equipment and machinery for your farm and its associated businesses.
  • Buying livestock or horses for an equestrian business.
  • Implement renewable energy solutions.

How Much Will Bridging Finance Repayments Cost?

The amount of bridging loan you receive and how much you have to pay back will entirely depend on your circumstances. Bridging finance is a set agreement between a lender and borrower, so our analysts will assess your financial viability and prospects before making a final decision.

Factors that might impact your bridging loan amount include your credit history, prospects and the exit strategy.

Credit History

While your credit history isn’t a determining factor in securing a loan, it can impact the processing speed, the amount you receive and the repayment agreement. Bad credit history will exclude your eligibility with some lenders but not all.

If you are accepted, it’s beneficial to show examples of previous loans and their complete repayment. Lenders will happily view this as a sign of trust and look upon your application more favorably.

The Purpose of Your Loan

Agricultural bridging loans can be beneficial for numerous purposes, as we mentioned previously. But the potential added value of your bridging loan might play a part in creating will define the amount you receive.

For example, organic food continues to grow in popularity, so if you need bridging finance to invest in buying new machinery and equipment for organic produce, lenders will see this as a viable prospect.

Exit Plan

An exit plan refers to how you’ll repay the bridging loan when the time comes. As these flexible solutions are short-term loans, you’ll have to show lenders how you plan to settle monies owed.

For example, if you secure a bridging loan on a plot of land, you’d have to wait to begin construction. But development finance can provide you with money to repay the loan and develop your agricultural business.

Other exit plan strategies include remortgaging your property or using the profits from your agricultural business to repay the outstanding amounts.

Is a good credit history essential?

As with many loan providers, you don’t need to have the best level of credit, but your rating and history will determine the loan secured. Individuals with an impressive credit history will be able to take advantage of low-interest rates.

When you have a poor credit history, it’s important to show lenders you have an exit strategy. This will give them peace of mind, but it doesn’t guarantee you’ll secure your desired loan amount.

When it comes to our providers, we look at applications individually and measure the merits of each. Your loan term will depend on how viable your project is and whether you’ll be able to make repayments.

The Loan to Value (LTV) amount

The loan to value amount refers to how lenders assess the risk of offering money to a borrower. For example, if you purchase a plot of land for £100,000 and secure a loan for £80,000, the loan to value amount will be 80%.

We’ll use this calculation to explore the likelihood of you paying back the original loan and potential value increase once all work is completed.
