What is the difference between a commercial mortgage and a residential mortgage?
The main, and most obvious difference between a commercial property mortgage and a residential mortgage is the use. A residential mortgage is used for buying a home and a commercial mortgage is used to buy a property for business purposes.
You’ll find that commercial mortgages tend to have higher interest rates than their residential counterparts, as they are a higher risk to the lenders.
While it’s possible to secure a residential mortgage with a 5-10% deposit, a commercial loan will usually require a much larger deposit, this is usually between 20 and 40% of the value of the property.
Usually, residential mortgages have much longer terms than commercial mortgages, a residential mortgage tends to have repayment periods of 25-35 years, whereas commercial mortgages will need to be paid back over a shorter period and terms can vary between 1 and 25 years, although some lenders will cap them at 15 years
The benefits of commercial mortgages:
- The interest on your commercial mortgage is tax-deductible.
- If your property increases in value, your capital could also see an increase.
- You’ll be able to rent out the property to generate extra income.
