Commercial Finance Service

Commercial property finance we can source for you

We can secure competitive rates for:


Including shared office space for the growth of sole-trader businesses and SMEs and co-working spaces. Forward-looking investors and developers are piggybacking on the market growth led by the high-profile branded co-working spaces, developing sites such as BaseCamp Liverpool, The Assembly Manchester and Industry in Chester.

Retail outlets

The face of retail is changing, both on the high street and away from city centres, in housing and office developments. We work with entrepreneurial lenders who are ready to invest in newly developed opportunities.

Mixed-use premises

The combination of residential with commercial premises has traditionally been problematic, but we have lenders who are keen to get involved in financing mixed-use properties, up to 75% LTV and above, including residential above, shops and restaurants.

We’re also experienced in finding finance for rural estates that include residential rental properties and small business premises in converted outbuildings:

Factories, industrial units, and warehouses

The growth in off-the-high street and online retailing is offering more opportunities to investors looking for opportunities to acquire and develop small industrial estates. And some of them are taking a more active role in encouraging synergies between the on-site businesses.

Restaurants & cafes

The decline in the formal UK restaurant market leads to new opportunities for more relaxed and convenient food providers, including centralised takeaway hubs.

Meanwhile, the café market is still growing strongly, off the growth of the coffee economy: three coffee shops opening every day in the UK, with the number of coffee shops set to overtake pubs by 2030.

Lenders are keen to support developers stepping into these growth markets, including developing food outlets on trading estates.

Nursing and care homes

The changing face of the social care industry is making waves in the nursing and care home property market. Established care home operators face a pressing need to upgrade ageing properties, creating opportunities for developers buying up and converting old stock.

We have extensive experience sourcing finance on care home developments and conversions. Read our case studies:

Bridging loan to purchase and convert Swindon care home into flats

Portfolio buy to lets

The complexities of portfolio investment property holdings call for the detailed, personalised approach we take to the issues that our clients present.

Advising on portfolio finance is a particular strength of ours. Restructuring finance across your holding can free up unencumbered properties available as security for future finance. Read our blogs:

HMOs (Houses in multiple occupancy)

We work with numerous landlords who are exploring the investment advantages of acquiring or converting properties to accommodate more tenants and improve their ROI.

While we can’t advise you on the details of licensing requirements, we will be able to take your finance application to the lender who will look most favourably on your particular circumstances.

Development land

Locating development land opportunities and acquiring planning permission is seldom a swift process.

We’re always ready to get involved at the outset, to scope out your finance opportunities and work with you throughout the stages of development, from feasibility study through to marketing and sales.
