Why would a business want to refinance their commercial mortgage?
It could be that your current mortgage deal does not reflect your circumstances any longer, for instance if your current mortgage arrangement is based on an adjustable rate you may find your monthly repayments difficult to budget for and may instead want to opt for a fixed-rate loan.
You may believe that you can get a better deal as a commercial mortgage can offer more room for negotiating a better deal than a domestic mortgage might. Commercial mortgages are calculated on more than just mortgage interest rates: for instance on things like the credit history of the borrower; the projected or historic performance of the business; and the security offered, can all mean that negotiation on mortgage deals is possible. It is likely that businesses will seek to make sure that they are receiving the best rates during the course of their mortgage. The property could have initially been bought, and financed, in order to be an investment. The mortgage might need to be refinanced in order to assess its increased value.
Refinancing a commercial property to release equity
In this time of austerity obtaining credit at a good rate can be difficult and so it might be worth investigating refinancing an existing commercial mortgage in order to release some capital to either expand or invest in the business. Often lenders can be cautious of financing rapid business expansions, so using equity from a commercial mortgage can release funds to do this.
Refinancing a commercial property to lower monthly repayments
Commercial refinancing can also be used to lower your monthly repayments by borrowing against the amount that you have invested in the property. This is particularly useful if the business is going through a temporary quiet spell. Another way that clients have used commercial mortgaging is to consolidate debts: by refinancing a business mortgage other debts can be cleared and then repaid through the mortgage in a convenient monthly amount.
What type of commercial mortgage loans are available?
There are various types of loan that are on offer, depending on the businesses’ needs. These can include: interest only mortgages; fixed-rate loans; adjustable rate loans; and 100 per cent refinancing loans. Loans are available to all types of business and property.
