What is a Commercial Mortgage Loan?

10/14/2009

Commercial LoansA commercial mortgage loan can be taken out when a business or commercial concern needs to borrow more money. The buildings of the business are used as security to provide collateral against the amount borrowed.

These loans are not available to individual people or families; they are only open to businessmen who wish to borrow more money to run their business. There can be many different reasons for this. It may be time to expand the business, or to take over new property. They may want to take over another business or they may need more tooling to meet a growing demand for their product.

Whatever the reason, just like a personal loan or mortgage, lenders of a commercial loan need to know that they are lending to people who are a good risk. If you are a business owner, you probably will not want to put down a deposit, but you have to show that you have a good credit history.

Interestingly, your own personal credit history bears no relation to this. You have to show that the business is a good credit risk. Before applying for these loans, it will be necessary to gather together all the paperwork. They will probably want to see up to three years of paperwork, financial statements and business records.

These loans are a fantastic way to expand a business. Most people would not think of taking out a commercial mortgage against their buildings. But the extra money can give a business the extra boost that it needs to move up to the next level. It can make the difference between having the funds to fill orders and gain a good reputation and turning away orders because there are not enough raw materials. We need more loans like these during these hard times.
