When you do a close comparison of available residential and commercial mortgages, you will notice that with commercial real estate property the financial organization is concerned with whether the business is sound and can be profitable in the future.

For instance, you may have a company which is not very successful and has average credit history but you can still buy a commercial property. What the bank would consider is how much profit you are earning against the sum of debt that you have got. If they feel that the business would not qualify for the mortgage they may require to see your personal credit account or demand some sort of a deposit but generally you can get the loan - at least in the good old days before the recession.

A few things to consider before applying:

Who is eligible:

The party applying for the commercial mortgage will have to fulfill the eligibility standards to get a good loan.

Having a bad credit history won't help you get a good loan. If you can get anything at all, it will have higher interest rates and a larger deposit.

The financial institution which is providing the loan will also assure if the business is stable. It also has to have up-to-date accounts for several years back. The bank could ask to see the fiscal accounts and also the financial bearings and goals that the company works with (the 'mission' or business plan).

Fundamentally the bank has to be positive about the information to be sure that your organization can pay the loan. There are some types of businesses that a bank will not give loan to, and specialised mortgage lenders are required (maritime for instance). This area is quite complicated and requires professional assistance. Whenever your organization is thinking of commercial mortgage you have to find a financial adviser to brief you thoroughly.
