Apply for a commercial mortgage

Consider your business cashflow:

Cashflow enables a business to pay bills, rent, expenses and salaries as well as measuring profit and growth.

Before applying for a loan, predict your future cashflows.

You will need to provide information to your lender about your finances to prove that you will be able to repay your loan.

It would be useful to consider the maximum amount you will be able to afford to pay back per month.

Every lender will require cashflow evidence as well as forecasts so they know what your available cash amount is at any given time.

Find a property:

It can be helpful to consider the criteria for your property search – size, commutability, closeness to transport links, health and safety requirements.

What are my alternative options?

Bridging loans

Bridging loans are used to effectively ‘bridge the gap’ between a purchase and full repayment of a property.

At Hunter Finance, property loans are quick, easy and straightforward, and we lend from £100k to £1million. Read more here.

A rapidly-arranged bridging loan can make the difference between a sealed deal and a lost opportunity.

Personal loans

You do not have to be a homeowner to apply for a personal loan. These tend to range between £1,000 and £25,000.

If you are planning to buy a small or mobile home, which tend to cost much less than a larger property, then a personal loan may be a suitable option. Personal loans are also used for necessary house repairs.

We have been providing property development finance for over a decade, helping individuals, investors and businesses with their construction projects.
