A commercial mortgage is a loan for buying (or refinancing) land or a property that’s to be used for business purposes. They’re very different from a personal mortgage for your home. There are no off-the-shelf products available, so you cannot apply online or compare rates. You will need a specialist hand to guide you through the initial enquiry and the application process and then finally to the completion stage. There are 2 types of commercial mortgages:
