Commercial mortgages are arranged for the purpose of purchasing or re-mortgaging property that is primarily for commercial or business use and can be arranged for as a form of investment (commercial buy to let) or for a business to trade from.

Owner Occupied Commercial Mortgage
An Owner Occupied business mortgage is where an applicant is looking to purchase a property to run their business from.
Owner-Occupied Commercial Mortgages are looked at more favorably than investment mortgages because the lenders feel there is less risk with this type of mortgage. The lenders will generally look to offer a standard loan to the value of approximately 70-75% LTV on an owner occupied commercial mortgage.
An advantage of owner occupied commercial mortgages is that the rates that lenders charge are often considerably lower and the terms of the commercial mortgages can be longer if required. Interest rates can be fixed or variable.
Benefits of owner occupied commercial mortgages
An owner occupied commercial mortgage will put you in control, putting an end to unwanted charges or price hikes form a landlord; especially if you have a fixed rate mortgage.
The general trend of property values is to go up, of course there is no guarantee.
Interest repayments on an owner-occupied commercial mortgage are tax deductible.
Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate Commercial Lending.
