Commercial Remortgages

Business remortgaging is a means of agreeing new terms on your existing commercial mortgage, or a way to release extra funds for use elsewhere.

Whether you’re looking to balance the books, expand your premises or invest in new assets, a commercial remortgage could be the next step in your business’ growth plan. Though they can be a useful means of freeing up funds, it’s worth keeping in mind that you’ll likely pay a higher interest rate, as lenders deem these types of loans a higher risk. Find out more about commercial remortgages below.
  • Remortgaging your business could free up funds to use for other ventures or to expand your portfolio

  • You may find yourself paying back more over time than your original arrangement should you release funds as a lump sum

  • You could secure better terms if you’ve already paid off a large sum from your property mortgage.

What is a business remortgage?

A business remortgage is a type of loan secured against the value of your commercial property. It’s usually offered at a lower interest rate than traditional commercial loans with flexible repayments, allowing you to pay off existing debts to take control of your finances, or grow your business through expansion or new equipment. However, they typically include higher interest rates than traditional private mortgages you would have on your own home or buy-to-let property.

By remortgaging your business property, you can also secure a better deal on your monthly repayments, allowing you to reinvest the extra funds as you see fit.

How does a business remortgage work?

A commercial remortgage can help you get quick access to the funds you need to take your business further. Secured against your property, commercial loans are often offered at a lower rate than other types of loans, giving you the flexibility to choose how to invest the money. If you’ve been on the same repayment plan for some time, switching lenders could also secure you a better deal.

However, if you cannot keep up with the payments, your commercial property will be at risk. Therefore, it’s important to evaluate your financial needs to ensure this is the right move.

Disadvantages of a business remortgage
