What is a commercial mortgage?

A commercial mortgage otherwise known as a business mortgage, is a medium to long term loan, lasting up to 25 years that can be used to fund the purchase of a business premise. Commercial mortgages are structured to suit both the lender and the borrower. The lender will need to see security and a return on their loan and the borrower wants to benefit through access to capital and affordable monthly payments. They will usually provide around 70% of the property’s value.

Potential drawbacks of taking out a commercial mortgage

You will have to factor in having to buy equipment, furniture and setting up appropriate insurance

Should your company expand or market conditions change, you  may wish to move premises, which may be slightly trickier if you own the building. 

Getting a commercial mortgage with bad credit

Even with bad credit, you are able to get a commercial mortgage, however it may be slightly harder to acquire the loan. A number of mortgage providers will still lend to people with poor credit however this can help to start cleaning up your score. Furthermore, once your credit score has improved from taking out a commercial mortgage, you will have the opportunity to remortgage to a cheaper deal. 

Points to consider when taking out a commercial mortgage

Deposits for a commercial mortgage can sometimes be quite hefty, (around 30%), therefore it is a good idea to ensure you are able to pay both the deposit and monthly payments.

If you haven’t been trading for long, lenders may see this as a high-risk case and request personal guarantees. 

It is best to use a commercial mortgage broker who is able to navigate the business mortgage world and are able to find mortgage deals that are not available on the high street market.
