What is the difference between a residential mortgage and a commercial mortgage?

Commercial and residential mortgage products are different. You will need a commercial mortgage to finance the purchase of warehouse space. You will have the option to apply for a conventional commercial mortgage or an Islamic (Sharia-compliant) loan. As with any mortgage or loan, the lender will assess the property value and the credit history of the individual applicant and the business. There will be fees involved although these will be structured differently with a commercial mortgage. As with any property investment, speaking with an expert, in this case, consult with commercial mortgage specialists, who can help you get to grips with the process, costs, regulations, and lending criteria.

Key Factors Lenders Consider

When applying for a commercial loan for a warehouse, lenders typically consider factors such as the location of the property, the business's financial performance, the business's inventory and equipment, the borrower's experience and business plan, and the overall economic climate.

Commercial lenders will typically offer a loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of up to 70%. This means that the loan amount can be up to 70% of the value of the warehouse property and any inventory, equipment, or machinery. However, circumstances and lenders are different, and the exact amount you can borrow and on what terms will be assessed on an individual basis. A commercial mortgage advisor will be able to answer all your mortgage questions and advise you on how to make your application as strong as possible to commercial lenders.
