Commercial financing criteria
Commercial mortgage lending varies from residential mortgages in terms of affordability assessments, eligibility criteria, and the rates and terms available.
The benefit of using a professional broker is that you have access to the entirety of the market, without any product restrictions or limitations on the lenders you have access to.
Our established networks of specialist commercial property mortgage lenders work with us to negotiate terms and structure tailored commercial property lending for each of our valued clients.
Commercial property lending and credit ratings
Whether raising a commercial property mortgage to invest in a new site, remortgaging to raise capital, or seeking to release cash flow against your assets, credit rating is something we are often asked about.
Appraisals for commercial property mortgages for businesses differ than for individuals since the company is providing the primary security. However, most lenders will also assess the liquidity and credit history of the business owners.
You may also be asked to offer personal guarantees, if there are any circumstances in the businesses trading - for example, being newly incorporated - that means it cannot provide sufficient security.
Many applicants do not have perfect credit ratings, and this is not a precursor to being unable to secure competitive commercial property lending.
Give our team a call today on 0330 304 3040, and we will help you source the right mortgage lending for your business.

Types of commercial property mortgage
You will find a wide range of commercial mortgage options available, and Revolution works to broker deals that exceed the competitiveness of offers available on the open market.
Typically security is not required for commercial property lending up to £25k, but for more significant mortgages the security will usually consist of a charge held against the property, and potentially other forms of protection.
Most commercial property mortgages have a term from three to twenty-five years, although if you require short-term financing, there are other products available such as bridging finance that might be a more cost-effective way of raising cash flow funds quickly.
Another factor to consider is the loan to value ratio. This is the proportion of lending against the value of the property being financed. For investment properties, it is the anticipated annual revenue achievable from rental income against the value of the borrowing.
Many mainstream commercial property lending firms will offer a maximum LTV ratio of 70-75%, meaning that you will need to have a 25-30% deposit in place to move forward. Revolution Brokers work with specialist commercial property mortgage lenders who can negotiate on LTV terms, and offer incredibly competitive rates with high LTVs.

- To refurbish, fit-out or modernise an existing asset.

There are multiple benefits to choosing a commercial mortgage as your form of lending. Revolution Brokers will work with you to understand your funding needs and will recommend alternative products if we anticipate that they will be more cost-effective or better suited to your plans.
