Commercial Mortgage - trading businesses

Commercial mortgage, in common with any other mortgage, is just a loan secured against property.  The only difference is that traditionally a  mortgage refers to a residential mortgage secured against your home whereas a commercial mortgage is secured against any other property, residential investment or commercial.

A trading business mortgage is a particular form of commercial mortgage where the occupier of the property is the business of the applicant.  This might be a business tied to its premises like a pub, hotel, care home or shop or it could be any other business type occupying an office, workshop, warehouse or factory.  Most businesses require somewhere to trade from and given the performance of property as an investment over the years, for many businesses it makes sense to pay a commercial mortgage rather than rent.

Bridging Loan - Auctions, development, refurbishment & conversion

A bridging loan is a short term funding option used to “bridge a gap” between a purchase and sale or re-mortgage onto a longer term product.

There are many uses for a bridging loan, many providers and a huge variety different bridging finance options;

  • Developers building residential or commercial property from scratch using a staged drawdown development loan.
  • Conversion or refurbishment of property to increase its value or bring a derelict property back into usage.
  • Auction purchase, where a tight timescale from offer to completion is required (often only 28 days).
  • Business cash flow, using the equity in property to help fund your business for the short term.

With bridging loan interest rates starting at only 0.44% per month there’s never been a better time to use your property.

Buy to let mortgage & Investment property

A buy to let mortgage is a particular form of commercial mortgage, in that it is secured against an investment property which is let out to a third party.  With the volatility of traditional investments in shares and other financial products, as well as the mistrust of main banks since the banking crisis of the last decade, investment in “bricks and mortar” has grown enormously.

Changes in taxation and regulation have brought buy to let mortgages and investments into close focus in the last few years but it remains an attractive option for many investors – as part of a wider portfolio.  As interest grows in corporate investment and trusts, both onshore and offshore, getting the right advice has never been more important.

Business loans, cash-flow & asset finance

A business loan can cover any other type of funding not secured by property – from a start up loan for a new venture to re-equipping your business with new machinery or vehicles.

Most businesses, small or large will need funding at some point to help their growth aspirations. Traditionally business owners would approach their own bank manager, but with more than 250 other lenders out there how do you know you’ll get the best deal – or even the best product?

Acorn.finance work with you to understand your needs before recommending a lender and a product – that way we’re working to match the lending to your short term needs and long term plans.
