As a very rough guide the majority of lenders will allow you to borrow around 70% to 80% of the price of the property you are wishing to buy. This of course means that you will have to give some thought as to where you will get the remainder of the money. Of course you will have to meet certain criteria that the lender will set out and this can vary between lenders. Having an excellent credit rating is essential when wishing to take out any form of finance and commercial mortgage loans are no exception.

A broker is able to go over your proposal and validate it and recommend any changes that need to be made in order to get the individual the best deal. This can save a lot of time and get your loan off the ground more quickly than if you choose to look for a loan yourself. A specialist will be able to search the UK commercial lending market place to find you the perfect mortgage and the best deal. However the majority of the time through experience they will know the lender that will suit your circumstances and who they can negotiate with quickly.
A broker will know exactly where to look when it comes to the lenders and finding the best rates of interest. This is due to them having experience when it comes to commercial finance and will have worked with lenders that they have secured the cheapest deals with in the past.
