There are plenty of options to refinance a business property, and the process itself works similarly to remortgaging a residential home.
You are essentially switching from one mortgage lender to another, with the same property as security against the lending.
Remortgaging is an excellent option for changing to a lender with a more competitive deal. A commercial remortgage can also help you renegotiate your lending with the same provider.
If you decide to change to a new lender, you'll still need to go through the eligibility assessment and affordability processes.
Businesses remortgage for many reasons:
The usual criteria apply, so before a lender offers a remortgage, they'll want to check you can afford the repayments.
There are no fixed limits on how much you can borrow since a commercial mortgage is bespoke to the application scenario. The lender will look at the operating profit of the business to analyse affordability.
In some cases, a lender may consider other income streams where the net operating profit isn't sufficient to comply with their affordability criteria.
Rates vary significantly between lenders and depending on the business, sector, and property.
The main factor is the risk, and how likely the lender feels that they are to receive complete repayments across the remortgage term.
Risk factors include:
Established businesses with good credit, a long trading history, a reasonably valuable property and a thriving business sector will attract more competitive rates than newer companies, or those without a profitable trading record.
Business financing refers to any lending secured against a business asset either to raise finance or repay other liabilities.
This type of lending can include asset financing, whereby you can leverage any company asset, such as cars or equipment, and raise capital against them.
Similarly to a mortgage, the capital is secured against the asset, and the lending is repaid along with interest over the term of the asset finance agreement.
Asset finance can be a quick alternative to remortgaging, and takes less time to organise than a mortgage, although a valuation is very likely to be required.
Most businesses will have debt from time to time, and refinancing the debt can reduce your interest payments, cut back on repayment values, and make borrowing more manageable.
Suppose you wish to consolidate or refinance business debts. In that case, the best route is to consult an experienced commercial broker, such as the Revolution Finance team, to receive independent advice about the most advantageous options in your circumstances.
Indeed you can - commercial debts are like any other form of borrowing and can be refinanced through mortgage or asset finance.
Most unsecured business loans are up to a cap of £25,000, although a broker can secure higher loan values.
If you have equity in your business premise because it has appreciated, you have invested in the property, or the business has paid back some of the original loan, a commercial remortgage can release financing to pay back other debts.
Commercial financing is available in a bad credit scenario.
Still, the lender will need assurances, such as a valuation demonstrating that the LTV on the mortgage is low, a higher deposit, or personal guarantees from the business directors.
A lot depends on the value of the remortgage commercial agreement, what the property is worth, and how much risk the lender perceives they are taking on if they offer you a commercial remortgage agreement.
Fortunately, commercial remortgages are more flexible than residential refinancing, so there is a greater likelihood that you'll be able to release capital in your property to invest in other projects.
Lenders will typically charge higher interest rates, command a more substantial deposit, and require greater scrutiny of the business financial records to offset any potential risk of a bad credit record impacting your ability to repay the debt.
The key here is to work out which lenders to apply to and how to meet their eligibility requirements.
Lenders will consider:
To refinance a company loan, a whole-of-market broker is far and away the most secure option, with independent advice about the different forms of lending based on what you'd like to consolidate.
Some lenders will only accept business applicants with at least two years of trading history, whereas others specialise in new business financing.
They could also require a copy of the loan statements to check whether you've kept up with the repayments over the last six months.
You can choose a commercial remortgage to release investment equity in the site to raise the financing you need for another business project, such as buying new equipment, hiring more staff, or raising working capital.
The lender will ask why you wish to apply for a remortgage commercial product and may need a copy of your business plan.
Business plans show how much you want to borrow on a commercial remortgage, what you will do with the proceeds, and help the lender decide whether your objectives are financially viable and likely to succeed.
The benefits all depend on your business, how much you are paying, and what changes you wish to make to your expenses and cash flow.
If you have a bad credit rating, for example, it might be best to keep the mortgage as it stands, as a new lender would not be able to offer better rates if your credit score has declined since you took out the original loan.
You might also be liable for steep repayment penalties if you are within an initial period of the loan.
Should you be considering refinancing options and need professional support making the right decision, contact Revolution Brokers on 0330 304 3040.
The most cost-effective option depends on why you're borrowing, and how much you need:
The rules don't change depending on the size of the business, so if you're looking for refinancing, the same eligibility criteria will reply as for a more significant organisation.
Small commercial mortgages carry similar eligibility requirements to any other commercial property remortgage.
Lenders will want to assess your trading figures, property value, business plans and future projections and will sometimes require additional security such as personal guarantees from the company directors.

Yes, a commercial remortgage is used to pay back an existing mortgage, raise additional finance, reduce monthly outgoings, or consolidate other debts into a lower regular cost.
Commercial property remortgage products are commonly used to release equity, particularly where the business plan involves investing in other projects.
Much as you can remortgage a residential home and apply for slightly more than you need to pay back the current debt, a commercial remortgage can release equity for a wide range of reasons.
Commercial remortgage lenders may wish to review your business plans and ask what you want to do with the additional finance.
Any commercial remortgage or lending product will be more expensive in terms of arrangement fees and interest costs than a comparable residential mortgage.
However, choosing to remortgage commercial debt may mean reducing your expenses by remortgaging onto a product with a lower interest charge.
If you wish to remortgage commercial property, you'll find that most of the process is similar to a residential mortgage.
You can take out a mortgage to buy a trading premise or an investment property to let out through your business.
The most common reasons to remortgage are to find a better deal, remortgage commercial products that have come to the end of a fixed contract, or borrow a larger amount against the increased value of your business premise.
