A Commercial Mortgage is simply a mortgage designed to buy commercial, rather than residential property. The property may be an office, industrial unit or a shop for your business to use, or an investment, where tenants pay you rent.
They work like a residential mortgage, with some important differences. Your income is not the key factor in the lenders' decision. They are secured on the property itself, and this value and the performance of your business will help set how much you can borrow.
However, unlike a residential mortgage, the rates and terms for a Commercial Mortgage are arranged on an individual basis. Lenders will look at your business, accounts and projections to ensure that it has a future and set interest rates based on the level of risk they believe it presents.
Interest rates and terms are always decided on an individual basis. Rates will vary - but our Commercial Mortgage Calculator can give you an idea of the potential costs involved.

Why you might choose a Commercial Mortgage
To buy your business premises
A Commercial Mortgage could let your company buy the premises where you operate now or buy new premises to move into. Buying your factory, warehouse office or even land could all be possible with a Commercial Mortgage, and can frequently reduce your monthly outgoings compared with renting your premises.
To acquire residential and commercial buy to let
Commercial Mortgages can be used to fund the purchase of property to be let out. This approach is commonly used by professional residential landlords, as well as buy to let limited companies, to help build a property portfolio. Less well-known are commercial buy to lets. These might, for example, allow you to buy warehousing and let it out to other businesses.
To secure land
If you need to buy land, for agricultural, storage or development needs, it may be possible to use a Commercial Mortgage to do so.
Borrowing to fit your needs
There is no upper limit on what you can buy with a Commercial Mortgage - making it suitable for any size of property purchase. However, because of the legal and administrative costs, it is uneconomical to borrow less than £50,000. Some lenders have a minimum of £75,000 or more. Below this level, a Secured Loan may be more appropriate.
A deposit will be required. A typical loan-to-value ratio that you may be offered if yours is a new business with no trading history will be 50% of the purchase price. Owner-occupied businesses such as offices or represent a better risk for lenders, and can normally get a maximum loan-to-value of around 80%.
Commercial Mortgages usually run for 15 years, but longer terms are possible. There will be valuation, arrangement and legal fees to consider. There can also be additional costs for the services of professional advisors. These are generally higher than the costs expected with a residential mortgage.
The rates and terms they offer will reflect the lenders' view of your business and the level of risk they believe it presents. A sound business in a growing sector could expect to secure the best rates and terms, but the views and criteria of one lender can be very different from another - which is why it is essential to get expert help when you are ready to arrange the best Commercial Mortgage.
Repaying a Commercial Mortgage
You may be able to choose a repayment mortgage option where you pay the capital and interest back each month or an interest-only mortgage where you only pay the interest back each month. If you choose this option, the lender will seek evidence of an appropriate investment policy that will cover the outstanding capital at the end of the loan term.
Fixed and variable rate deals are usually between two and five years, after which payments may switch to the lenders' standard variable rate.
A Commercial Mortgage is a loan secured on property assets, usually to help you buy them. However, a Commercial Remortgage is secured on property you already own and lets you release the investment to use it again for any purpose. It works by letting you take out a new Commercial Mortgage on your existing property.
If you own the property outright, all the money you raise is yours to use in any way you wish. If you are refinancing an existing Commercial Mortgage, you can repay your original loan, and use any surplus cash to help build your business. In both cases, when you repay the loan, you regain full title to your premises. The chances are that by doing so you will be able to take advantage of rates that are exceptionally low. A Commercial Remortgage can be among the lowest cost types of lending available.
With current low interest rates and high property values, it could be the simplest way to get the funds you need.
