Commercial Buy to Let Mortgage

Commercial Property Buy to Let Mortgage

Our site is being rebuilt – please bear with us for a few days.

As the government seems to be waging war against residential housing providers, many buy to let investors are looking to commercial property as a stable alternative.

Commercial buy to let mortgages are essentially the same as residential buy to let mortgages but with a few minor differences;

  1. Generally commercial leases are for longer periods, so mortgage lenders will be concerned about who the tenant is and their ability to cover the rent (and therefore you cover the commercial buy to let mortgage).
  2. Due to this many lenders will expect the property to be fully let on completion. There can be exceptions but that would potentially mean a higher interest rate. It’s normal to request a delayed completion to allow time to get a tenant signed up on purchase.

Multi Unit Block buy to let mortgages

A Mult-unit freehold block (MUFB) is just a property split into flats (or a purpose built block). The difference from a funding point of view is that the buy to let mortgage is against the freehold of the block rather than each individual flat.

A MUFB is different to an HMO in that each unit is a self contained flat rather than having shared facilities (such as kitchens, bathrooms or communal areas.)

Each flat will therefore have its own tenancy agreement, its own utilities and council tax.

The maximum loan against a MUFB can be lower than expected as some lenders discount the overall value for larger blocks.

Houses of Multiple Occupation buy to let mortgages (HMOs)

Because they offer better cash flow than standard buy to let properties, but not as much management as serviced accommodation, HMOs are a popular choice for investors taking the next step in their journey.

The HMO mortgage market is misunderstood by many investors meaning professional advice is vital if you’re going to get the most out of your property and the best buy to let mortgage for your property.

Getting the best mortgage isn’t just about the interest rates, it’s also about what sort of valuation the lender will lend against, what sort of HMO they will lend against and what experience they expect you to have.

Applications to the wrong lenders cost time and money, by taking the time to understand understand your case before presenting to lenders, your Acorn.finance advisor will save you both, and ensure you get the best buy to let mortgage rate for your property and circumstances.
