Expansion & Refurbishing: Reasons For Commercial Remortgage

Aug 4, 2008
Owning and operating your own business can be both rewarding and challenging. Many businesses at one time or another may need to expand their facilities or buy new equipment or office equipment and furniture. This can be expensive for the owner. One method they can use to obtain necessary funding is through a commercial remortgage; using the money in the property's equity to fund its needs. By remortgaging the property, the business can deal with the same lender. This can keep everything in the same hands and make the transaction go much smoother.

Using commercial remortgage funds to finance business expansion can be fairly easy, especially if going through the existing lender, and the business's credit history has been good. Most business loans are made on the financial history of the owners and once the business is established, additional loans from the same lender are usually easy to obtain.

Many times a commercial remortgage is sought to have access to the equity in the commercial property in which the business is housed. It is often easier to remortgage a property than to fund a second mortgage to obtain additional funds for expansion.

There are companies that sell office furniture and equipment and are willing to finance the purchases through a second mortgage on the business. Typically, interest rates will be within reason if the company is legitimate and they will want future business as the needs change. However, this will be an additional payment the business will need to make, and could alter the cash flow in a negative fashion.

By securing commercial remortgage funding, the equity in the mortgage can be used to fund expansions, new equipment or even a vacation. Usually in a remortgage, payments can be lowered as well, allowing the business to have more monthly cash flow and, depending on the mortgage balance may result in getting it paid off sooner, if the business is able to increase monthly payments. For most, a commercial remortgage may be the best option, provide the business owner has a sufficiently high credit rating to qualify.

Some businesses may find themselves in a position of negative cash flow and yet has a good deal of equity built up on the property. In these situations, a lender may be willing to help out through a commercial remortgage to help the company through a rough spot. Provided the company has a good payment record and has not fallen behind in making payments. With a good credit history, the owner may be able to refinance, possibly for a longer term and reduce the monthly payment.

Another possible reason for a company to seek a commercial remortgage is to buy another business. Using the equity in an existing building, they can apply for a second loan on another property or business to expand the existing commercial venture adding to capacity or to the potential for additional income. With a good credit history buying a new business through refinancing of an existing business is not unusual.
