PLEASE NOTE - COMMERCIAL FINANCE IS NOT REGULATED BY THE FCA.

Commercial - We can arrange finance for a wide variety of property types - including owner-occupier business property (as opposed to having tenants in the property ). As an example we can arrange finance on -

  • Commercial Industrial Property
  • Development Finance
  • Commercial Investment Property
  • Offices
  • Retail Units
  • Nursing and care Homes
  • Offices
  • Professional Practices
  • Residential Development Finance
  • Hotels......etc etc.

Unlike residential mortgages where the borrower has to fit a lenders criteria to obtain a specific scheme and rate and terms, with commercial lending the borrower and the proposal determinethe rate and terms obtained. Therefore

an experienced borrower, with a good track record, good deposit etc will obtain better terms than a start-up proposal borrower.

Finance can be arranged on an individual ( sole trader ) basis, a partnership basis, a limited liability partnership basis or a private limited company basis.

In adddition we arrange the following finance -


Bridging Finance - This is short term finance and is based primarily on the value of the property on which it is secured. This finance is useful fo purchase of development property or as a chain breaker. It is not cheap but could be the difference between obtaining the property you want or missing out on the deal.

Buy to Let - These are designed for applicants OR Limited Companies that wish to own a property which will be let on either a 6/12 month Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement or a company contract. These schemes are based primarily on the rental income the investment is to achieve. Other factors may also impact on the scheme available - i.e. applicants credit status, income or whether the owner is an individual or a company.

We also prepare BUSINESS PLANS for both start up businesses and annual reviews for existing firms. If you have been in business for a number of years you will be aware how things can deviate from the original plan. We strongly recommend that existing firms review their business plans so that a refocus can occur.

A standard business plan will involve aa number of meetings with the business owners.
