Bell Ingram, the leading land and estate management firm, have strengthened their presence to provide AMC specialist lending services to land-based commercial businesses in Perthshire and the north east of Scotland.
The announcement of two new key appointments to the Bell Ingram staff portfolio comes at a time when the AMC have announced greater flexibility for mortgage finance for landed estates.
Senior associates Sarah Tyson and James Petty – who both have many years of AMC agency and valuation experience – are based in the Perth and Aberdeen offices of Bell Ingram respectively.
Sarah and James, whose arrival will also strengthen the team of existing agents in the Forfar and Oban Bell Ingram offices, have both worked in the north east and have built up a sound private, as well as AMC, client base.
In addition Stewart Hamilton, an associate in the Bell Ingram Forfar Office, has been appointed the lead agent for AMC work in the firm.
Bell Ingram’s Head of Land Management Malcolm Taylor said: “As specialist lenders with more than 85 years standing, AMC has developed bespoke lending policies and mortgages specifically tailored for the needs of the farming and landed estates market.
“With historically low interest rates and discounted loans available for some projects now could be a great time to cost-effectively invest in farm and estates improvements.”
Malcolm added: “The addition of Sarah and James to Bell Ingram’s existing team of agents and valuers will enable the firm to provide an enhanced service to clients in the north east of Scotland and Perthshire.
“In addition Stewart has a wide experience of general valuations and farming in Angus and Fife and is well placed to offer advice to prospective applicants.
“One of the many advantages of using an AMC agent through Bell Ingram is that they will work with customers from the initial contact right through the application process and the valuation process – it means the agent will be in a position to best present client’s businesses to the AMC application team.”
