Buying a property for your business is quite a different process to securing a home loan, it’s an investment that requires a strategic approach. There is less legislation governing commercial property; therefore, the banks have more freedom with their lending policy.
Often a commercial property is more difficult to value and therefore represents a higher risk to a lender. As a result, it’s likely the bank will undertake a more detailed valuation and risk assessment process.
Things to consider when arranging a commercial loan
- The deposit required is likely to be higher than for a residential property
- Interest rates are higher for commercial property loans
- It can be harder to sell a commercial property
