What is a Commercial Mortgage?

Commercial Mortgages, also known as Business Mortgages, are for those who are purchasing or remortgaging property that will be used as a commercial or business premises. This type of business financing is also available on mixed-use properties, such as those that are part residential and part commercial.

What Are The Terms For A Commercial Mortgage?

While terms for the repayments on your mortgage vary from lender to lender, some common terms include:

  • Some repayment plans have three-year terms
  • Others may offer a longer term of 25 years
  • The industry average is around 15 years.

The terms you can expect to see are often determined by the value and/or size of your property or land, as well as the available deposit you have available. One of the tricky aspects of this type of mortgage is watching out for complex clauses or directives which can bring you a greater risk.

To make sure you’re getting the right deal for you, and to ensure you fully understand the mortgage that you take out, give us a call, our team is always on hand to discuss any financial solutions you may be considering.

How Much Is The Deposit For A Commercial Mortgage?

The typical deposit you can expect to pay for a Commercial Mortgage is around 30% of the property or land’s value.

What Fees Would I Need To Pay With A Commercial Mortgage? 

When applying for a typical Commercial Mortgage, you will need to consider the cost of:

  • Legal costs
  • The costs of any required surveys 
  • Insurance policies
  • Loan arrangement fees
  • Valuation fees

What Is A Part-Commercial Mortgage?

A part-commercial mortgage for a property that is mixed-use. So for property which is half business and half residential, such as flats above a shop or pub, or part-converted offices.

This type of property often does not fall within the terms of a standard or commercial mortgage and so carry their own.

The Current State Of Commercial Lending

As a standard, you’ll need to be able to fund at least 25% of the property’s value, as commercial lending has suffered badly since the global financial crisis. To meet this funding, however, additional security can be used to increase the lending figure.

High Street banks are now being more restrictive with their lending criteria and lenders will only provide up to 75% loan to value (LTV). This has resulted in many SMEs not being able to refinance existing properties or purchase new ones, effectively stifling the growth or survival of some of these businesses.

What We Offer

As an independent commercial broker, we have partnerships already in place with a number of commercial loan providers, both on and off the High Street.

You can therefore use our skills and expertise to assess your needs and identify the right lending solution very quickly. Any applicable fees will be discussed and agreed upon at the outset of the application and the rate you pay will be driven by the overall strength of your application.
