What is a commercial mortgage?
A commercial mortgage is a mortgage loan secured on a property, which is not your residence, such as an office building, industrial warehouse or retail premises.
There are two types of commercial mortgage – a business mortgage for trading purposes and a commercial investment mortgage for those looking to invest in commercial property. However, each loan has to be assessed individually.
