How we have raised finance for businesses like yours

Dogged determination - and Channel 4 - helps ASC Client to find the right property!

The highly popular Channel 4 show Relocation, Relocation, Relocation recently featured the Langman family’s quest to find a property to house themselves, with income potential and space to accommodate their daughter Lauren’s canine agility training business.

Outside the scope of the programme was the funding arrangement behind the purchase which was completed with the assistance of local ASC Director Conrad Robins.

Although availability of finance is a prerequisite for the TV programme, when a suitable property was discovered, the mortgage arranged in advance proved no longer appropriate

The proposal wasn’t entirely straightforward in that the property comprised living accommodation, holiday lets and the Devon Dogs business with three separate income streams and a simple residential mortgage would not therefore be appropriate.

The family financial adviser David Grimshaw approached ASC for assistance and, having met with the Langmans, Conrad was able to identify the right source from ASC’s extensive lending panel so that the formalities could be concluded with a minimum of fuss, with the full co-operation of these methodical and pragmatic clients.

As Carole explained: “When we realised that the mortgage wasn’t available, we didn’t know where to turn and after all our earlier frustration we were prepared to give up the dream. Without Conrad and ASC, this wouldn’t have happened”.

Lauren still finds it hard to believe how well matters turned out and she can concentrate on building her business and preparing for her next shot at the World Dog Agility Championship!

Lauren’s Devon Dogs business is now based at Bowerland while Carole and Alan are fully booked up!
