Commercial Finance

Finance for commercial property

Whether you are looking for your own business premises or seeking to diversify your investment portfolio, our commercial mortgage team work with both high-street and specialist lenders to help you achieve your aims.

A commercial mortgage is secured against commercial premises. This may be fully commercial (such as a factory or warehouse) or semi-commercial (such as a shop with a flat above it or a residential property that is also used for commercial reasons).

Case Studies

Branching into semi-commercial

A client had identified a restaurant with three self-contained flats above that they wished to purchase. Although they were an existing landlord, they were still relatively inexperienced and this, coupled with the fact that it would be their first commercial/semi-commercial property, was an issue for some lenders. We placed the application with a lender that was happy with our client’s experience, would look at the restaurant income on the current lease and could turn everything around in a timely fashion to meet the seller’s deadline.

Purchase of a commercial nursery

Our clients wanted to buy the building they run their nursery business from. We were able to source a lender that would not only support the proposal to buy the property within a created limited company, but due to a great business model and good profit yields through evidenced accounts, the lender would honour 100% lending of the purchase price with no deposit. This meant that our clients could retain and utilise funds towards potential future expansion within their chain of nurseries. (March 2024)

Individually re-financing a portfolio

A client came to us with a portfolio comprising an HMO, two semi-commercial properties and a standard buy to let. The entire portfolio was held under one charge by a lender on a variable rate. We aided the client in remortgaging each property separately. By individually re-financing, the client saved thousands of pounds over the initial term, even when factoring in the 1-year early repayment charge from the current lender. Our lender relationships enabled the client to access semi-exclusive rates which were well ahead of the market. (January 2024)
