Can I mortgage leasehold and freehold properties?
There are no limitations on mortgaging freehold commercial properties
Typically a commercial mortgage can be raised on a leasehold property as long as there is more than 40 years remaining on the lease (for most lenders).
A commercial mortgage can be available for both licensed and unlicensed HMO’s (House in Multiple Occupation). However, if it is licensed, this license must be made available.

Just to say a big thank you to you and all the others who have helped with this process – including the underwriters at Shawbrook who met me early this morning. We have completed on the purchase successfully! This would not have been possible without your intervention – so a big thank you.
