B&B Finance

B&B finance for new to trade B&B operators

For many, owning a bed and breakfast is the realisation of a long-held ambition. To run your own B&B business is almost as far as you can get from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. It’s no wonder that the B&B market in the UK is so buoyant.

What’s even better is that lenders are keen to lend against a B&B, as its freehold status and strong residual residential value is widely considered as excellent security.

However, being new to the B&B trade can give lenders need for extra reassurance before investing, and that’s where using the services of a broker like Stewart Hindley is invaluable. We have years of industry experience and strong relationships with many lenders who will consider new to trade B&B operators.

Can first time buyers get B&B finance?

Absolutely. While previous experience running a B&B is a benefit when seeking B&B finance, it’s far from the only thing lenders look for.

Many factors affect the likelihood of securing finance for a new B&B – evidence of experience is just one – and with our help, we can make your first time application for a B&B mortgage as attractive as possible to potential lenders.

At Stewart Hindley, we can help you gather the documentation you need in support of your application for B&B finance as a new to trade operator, from strong income projections to proof of security. Our expert approach has helped many clients over the years to buy and run their own B&B businesses, including many first time buyers. Read our case studies about B&B funding to find out more.

How we help new to trade operators secure a B&B mortgage

Securing B&B finance for first time buyers takes specialist knowledge and industry-wide connections. Our aim is to source and secure the best loan or B&B mortgage on your behalf, which we do by identifying and approaching those lenders open to funding new to trade B&B operators.

It also helps if you can demonstrate dedication and willingness to learn the B&B trade by taking part in a specialist B&B management training course. We can recommend recognised trainers who can quickly introduce you to the essentials of running a B&B, with exactly the guidance you need.

With us working on your first time B&B debt application, we will ensure that you understand all of the options and are aware of the process – from the very beginning to when you finally have those B&B keys in your hand. Naturally, the mortgage will be agreed subject to market conditions, your own financial circumstances, and the market value of the business you wish to buy.
