A Commercial mortgage can be arranged for the purpose of purchasing or re-mortgaging a property for commercial or business use for businesses to trade from or alternatively where a property is purchased as a form of investment eg. as a commercial buy to let.

Commercial mortgages are provided by banks and other specialist financial institutions. They are generally a more complex type of lending compared to residential mortgages and require a higher level of expertise to successfully arrange.

The current typical LTV for a high street bank offering commercial mortgages is 65-70%, however there are higher LTV options available through Harris Begley via specialist banks with up to 75% on a standalone basis or 100% with additional security, if available.
