What is a commercial mortgage?

A commercial or business mortgage is a type of loan for businesses that want to borrow funds to purchase property or land for business use or expand their existing property. Most used by business owners who want to own the premises, commercial mortgages can also be used by investors who want to buy a property to lease to another business or a residential property developer/owner who wants to buy multiple properties and rent to tenants.

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.

Interest Rates

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.
