In its simplest form, commercial property finance is the use of secured lending to purchase a property. Traditionally the loan is secured by rental income or natural cash flow from a business, with the terms and headline interest rate highly dependent on these factors. Historically, larger companies with stronger cash flow have often found it easier to secure commercial property finance compared to smaller operations. The situation has changed over the last few years with the more specialist commercial property financial companies offering bespoke funding for small, medium and large operations.
There is no one size fits all with regards to a commercial property finance arrangement, all deals are different. The key to securing the best commercial property finance rates is to present your situation in the most advantageous light. What you may lack in cash flow you may make up for in assets and vice versa. There are now many different specialist commercial property financial companies focusing on particular types of property, specific size companies and even specialising in regions such as London for example.
Commercial property finance London is a prime example of how the market works. Even in the most challenging of economic times/property markets there is still finance for deals if the figures add up. The idea that commercial property funding will evaporate in challenging times is simply wrong with volatility often encouraging liquidity.
