Commercially Viable Commercial Mortgages

Commercial mortgages are similar to residential mortgages. Usually taken by businesses, commercial mortgages are secured against business property.

Businesses have to make an important decision regarding the premises where the operations are to be carried. It is a buy or rent decision. By acquiring a property on rent, one is required to make a small monthly or quarterly payment. However, even after paying the rental for innumerable months you are not able to make inroads into the property ladder.

Buying property, on the other hand, will be intricately difficult for a newly set up business. This will require a bigger investment. Obviously, the share of production in the capital lessens. Commercial mortgages provide a solution to this paradoxical situation.

Businesses where real estate holds an important place will benefit most from commercial mortgages. Running hotels and resorts from rented properties is a cheaper short-term solution. However if you plan to stay longer, it will be necessary to learn the drawbacks. The property owner may raise the rental or does not renew the lease. Moving operations to a new place will be more inconvenient for these businesses.

Commercial mortgage creates an asset in the form of real estate. The organization can fall back on the premises for help in times of recession. Because of the higher risk involved the rate of interest is usually higher in commercial mortgages, as compared to the residential mortgages.

Specialist lenders are the best place to look for commercial mortgages. They understand the specific needs of every particular industry. Thus, they are able to provide better solutions. However, the borrowers will have to decide the specialist lenders out of the many lenders available. Brokers can save borrowers this effort by finding best lenders and best deals in commercial mortgages. These brokers charge a commission for their services. Few brokers charge commission directly from the lenders.

Apart from the interest and principal amount of commercial mortgage, there are certain fees that the borrower will have to bear. Some lenders charge about 0.5-1.5% of the mortgage as a processing fee. The amount varies with lenders. Some lenders do not even charge the processing fees. The borrower is also charged for the valuation of the property and preparation of legal documents. Some lenders also charge early redemption penalties. It will be necessary to read well between the lines to be aware of such clauses.

Available with variable and fixed rate options, commercial mortgages are repaid in a variety of methods. The borrowers can choose from paying fixed monthly payments of both interest and principal as in a repayment mortgage, or only the interest as in interest only mortgage. The manner in which the final payment is made classifies the methods into endowment mortgage, individual savings account mortgage, and pension mortgage.

The owner or the proprietor of the organization taking the commercial mortgage must have a good credit standing. Since the owner plays an important role in the management of the organization, the lenders would study the policies framed by the owner. The organization as a whole must be well run and managed, and must have a good credit history. Lenders generally demand audited accounts and bank statement showing the dealings of the business. A copy of the balance sheet will accompany these documents. If demanded, future projections for the company will have to be furnished.

Lenders usually charge a deposit of 20-30% of the amount of mortgage. Once the organization decides to take up the commercial mortgage, it must start preparing for the deposit. All the documents must be updated to make the approval process easier.
