If it’s a commercial mortgage you’re looking for Certified Mortgage Broker’s can help you to close the best deal. Because a commercial mortgage is a contract with a business, organisation or partnership, the process is a lot more complex than with residential mortgages.

What is a commercial mortgage?

Residential Properties Differences
Commercial Mortgage Barrie

A commercial mortgage is a loan taken on commercial property, such as shops, offices or factories. As with a residential mortgage the property serves as security on the loan. Interest rates on commercial mortgages are higher than those on residential properties, but these are tax-deductible expenses.

The term of a commercial mortgage typically shorter than the term of a residential mortgage with terms of between three and ten years. Commercial mortgages frequently end with a balloon payment.

These mortgages can take twice as long to finalise as residential mortgages. Most commercial loans have prepayment penalties and lockout phases during which paying off the mortgage will result in penalties.

You can purchase residential property with a commercial mortgage as long as it is to be used for investment purposes.

The traditional banks, for example, won’t fund all types of commercial properties. Private mortgage lenders can assist you when the traditional mortgage providers won’t.
