Building a property portfolio can be quite tricky at the best of times.

Commercial mortgages are a different kettle of fish from residential mortgages, with lenders requiring different information when making a decision on what to lend. Interest rates and arrangement fees are often higher than in the consumer market, so it's always important to speak to a range of lenders as there's a significant variance in how they view commercial properties. Commercial mortgage advice is offered by referral only.
Bridging loans can prove to be expensive but have their place in the housing market as a short-term fix, depending on your needs. If you are struggling to sell your existing property but have found the home of your dreams and would like to secure the property, then we are able to refer you to a master mortgage broker.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
