There are 2 types of commercial property mortgage, being Owner Occupier Mortgages are when the business uses the property itself and Commercial Investment Mortgages are where the property is rented out to one or more business tenants, similar to a buy-to-let mortgage.
The majority of Lenders will consider Commercial properties with either Freehold or a long Leasehold favourably, properties with a short Leasehold remaining may be more difficult to secure funding on.
Typically a commercial mortgage will be up to 75% loan to value (LTV) of the open market value (OMV) of the property.
Semi Commercial Mortgages
Semi commercial property mortgages follow the same rules as commercial property mortgages but where you have a business downstairs and living accommodation upstairs, as seen in many towns and villages the length of the country.
At Wattsford Commercial Finance, we can secure both capital and interest repayment and interest-only mortgages.

There are 2 types of Tax Relief that may be available on commercial property, being:
- Capital Allowances Tax Relief offsets the hidden expenditure in your commercial property. Typically, this includes elements such as air conditioning, wiring, heating, lighting and security systems – essentially everything that would remain in the building if you tipped it upside down!
- Remediation of Contaminated Land Tax Relief is for land and property owners, including leases granted of at least seven years in length, or those with at least seven years left to run on an assigned lease, may claim this relief for expenditure incurred on removing or treating contaminants in the land or property, such as asbestos, radon and Japanese Knotweed, or for bringing land that has been derelict for a long time back into use.
