Commercial Bridging Loan

A commercial bridging loan is a type of secured loan on a commercial or investment property. Essentially, it is a form of funding used by business owners to acquire office space, assist with cash flow, or refinance an existing property.

One significant benefit of a commercial bridging loan is the ease and speed with which it can be approved. To secure a commercial bridging loan, you will need a detailed business plan regarding the sale of the property or the refinancing to an alternative form of funding with lower interest rates, perhaps with a commercial mortgage.

A commercial bridging loan provides short-term funding until an exit strategy, like refinancing or a sale can be completed.

Commercial Mortgage

A commercial mortgage is often referred to as a commercial property loan and can be used by companies looking to purchase property or land for commercial use.

Companies looking to grow or alter their current business premises will often seek to secure a commercial mortgage or acquire an investment for rental income. 

Commercial mortgages are the most popular type of loan. They work a lot like a personal mortgage on a house, except they’re for business finance solutions. You use a commercial mortgage to purchase a property, or to secure finance against a business premises.

These loans come with competitive interest rates, even a fixed interest rate, and the mortgage term can often be up to 30 years.

Not all commercial mortgages are the same, depending on the lender. Some will only offer commercial mortgage loans for owner-occupied premises (commercial property you intend to use for your business), while others will only provide a secured loan to rent out for investment.
