Commercial Real Estate Finance FAQs

How Much Can I Borrow?

Borrowing against the commercial property will depend on whether it is Owner Occupied or Rented/Leased. In case, it is owner-occupied, the loan will depend on the profitability or EBITDA generated to service the loan. Alternatively, if the commercial property is rented, the loan amount will primarily depend on the annual rent being received by the tenant.

Can I Take Out a Commercial Mortgage on Interest Only?

Yes, commercial mortgages are available on interest-only or with a full capital repayment option.

What are Regulated Commercial Mortgages?

Commercial mortgages become regulated if 40% or more of the property is to be used as or in connection with a dwelling. This occurs where a property is used to both live in and trade from.

Can I Borrow Against Leasehold Property?

Yes, our commercial mortgage products are available for leasehold properties.
