Legal advice for financing a commercial property

Raising commercial property finance is tough but our real estate finance solicitors can advise you on all your options.

Accessing the best commercial property funding options for you.

We act for the full range of lenders including High Street banks, International and challenger banks, bridging lenders and debt and equity funds.

We can introduce you to the appropriate lender for you. We have an experienced team of property and finance lawyers, who understand all the legal complexities; we will guide you through the legal process so that you can complete, quickly.

Your options for commercial property transactions will vary, but most projects are funded by one of the following:

  • Lender loan

    We will advise you on the term sheet and the extent to which the commercial terms reflect the market and will work with you to anticipate the lender’s requirements, enabling you to access funds and get your project underway quickly. We can advise you on the security package requested. We can also advise you about securing business debt against the matrimonial home.

  • Private funding

    Securing funding through a private investor is still a good finance option, but as always, it is vital that you understand the implications of the finance terms and the security you will need to give. Our team has extensive experience of advising commercial property clients on securing private funding.

  • Pension funding

    Commercial and agricultural property transactions are increasingly funded through a secured commercial loan from your own or a third-party SIPP or SSAS. We have extensive experience of pension related funding and can help simplify the process for you.

  • Guaranteeing loans

    Depending on the security you can offer, your funder may look for corporate or personal guarantees. These can incur risks and you need to understand your liabilities. We will make sure you are fully aware of your current and future liabilities in relation to any guarantee given.
