Commercial Mortgages

The borrower may be a partnership, incorporation, or limited company and the assessment of the business can be a more complicated process. Commercial loan approval primary focuses more on the asset class, income and expense and borrower ability to service the loan.  Commercial loan up to 80% loan to value contingent on the asset class and location.


Construction loans are on average 85% LTC and on exception basis up to 100% LTC.  Clients can receive pre-construction draws for excavation and demolition. Purchasers deposit can be used towards the development – conditions apply.  

Construction loans cover land development and building construction costs. Funds can be disbursed on each stage completed, according to a prearranged schedule, or when certain conditions are met. Construction loans are repaid from the proceeds of permanent financing or sale of the asset usually over a period of 24 to 36 months.
