How easy is it to get a Commercial Mortgage in the UK?
As is the case when applying for any mortgage, be it a residential or a commercial mortgage, the better your credit and the better the collateral, the easier the process becomes. But that doesn't mean that if your credit is less than perfect, or you want to purchase commercial property in a less then desirable part of the city, that you are automatically locked out of getting the money you need. It just means that you need a "friend" in the business.
When you are applying for a commercial mortgage your potential lender will consider your credit rating, your business' balance sheet, the purpose of the loan, and the type and location of the proposed property as well as that property's appraised value. If every one of these items do not fall within the lender's acceptable guidelines then you may get a "no thank you" instead of a pile of money. Considering the amount of paperwork that you may have to complete in order to get a decision, be it a positive or negative one, you want to make sure that you have the best chances of securing that loan before you even start.
And that is where having a "friend" in the commercial mortgage business comes into play. If you were going duck hunting, and only had one shell with you, then you'd better be a pretty good shot. On top of that, you'd better not be planning to serve roast duck to a crowd because you're only coming home with one duck if any. Oddly enough, the same holds true when you are applying for a commercial mortgage.
Different lenders have different requirements for granting an approval. Since your goal is to make getting a commercial mortgage loan approval as easy as possible then you need to carry more than one shell with you. The best way to do that is to use the services of a commercial mortgage broker. A broker represents you and submits your commercial mortgage loan application to many lenders. Your "one shell" turns into a whole case of ammo as your application makes it across the desk of potentially hundreds of lenders. The odds are greatly in your favor that you are going to get an approval from at least one lender and, the truth is, many borrowers end up with several interested lenders and can actually negotiate the terms and conditions which suit them exactly.
Since your commercial mortgage loan broker doesn't earn their fee unless you get approved, they work with you to make getting a commercial mortgage loan as easy as possible. And, since the broker gets paid by the lender and not you, there is absolutely no reason not to engage their services.
Even if you had access to the same quantity of lenders as a broker does, you would have to fill out a separate commercial mortgage application and submit it to each lender. That process alone would take you more time than it takes to drive across the continent. A broker uses the same application and sends it to all of their lenders. That fact alone makes it easier to get a commercial mortgage than doing it yourself does. Even better is the fact that the broker already knows the terms and conditions that each of their lenders utilize. The broker will only send your application to those lenders whose qualifications you already meet.
Just like with everything else in life, there is an easy way and a hard way. If you're looking for the easy way to get a commercial mortgage loan then I suggest finding the best broker for your needs and let them do all the work. It doesn't get any easier than that!
