Pub, Hotel, Restaurant and Leisure Finance

Owning Your Own Business is Within Your Reach

When it comes to the pub finance and leisure industry, experience is key. That’s why our 25 years of senior management experience in both the brewery and hospitality trades can work for you if your dream is to own your own business. 

Unfortunately, you might be thinking now isn’t the right time to chase after that dream. The economy feels uncertain. Thousands of bars and restaurants have been forced to shutter their doors, and there is an increasing number of leasehold and freehold properties currently on the market at knock down prices. 

Realising Your Dream in the Midst of a Downturn

We might be dealing with uncertain times right now, but that really isn’t a reason to give up on your dream. Thankfully, we have still been able to help many clients realise their dream of business ownership. If you truly want to enter the pub, restaurant, and leisure sector, you don’t need to lose hope based on the state of the economy. Instead, let us assist you when it comes to getting started securely, so you don’t have to worry about the potential pitfalls of starting a new business on your own. 

If you’re already a current ‘tied’ leaseholder, we can help you to acquire the freehold of your existing property. As a result, you’ll own the property outright and won’t have to worry about your lease any longer. Most business owners don’t realise that there are some special arrangements that can be made when it comes to financing, especially if you’ve already proven yourself to be a well-established, profitable business.

     What Are the Key Underwriting Requirements for Pub, Bar, Hotel, and Restaurant Finance?

    • Your application should showcase evidence that your business is in high demand within your locality. 
    • A re-financing option can be provided if your property is going to be retained on completion.
