Frequently Asked Questions about Aquamore’s Commercial Loan Products

How do commercial loans work?

Commercial loans work by securing a set amount of capital borrowed from a lender with an agreed repayment term. This agreement will include the level of interest to be paid back either on a monthly or an annual basis, the length of time the loan will be repaid over, and the security of the loan. Loan security is typically arranged through an offset against an existing asset such as property. There are different types of commercial loan and the summary of the venture you’re looking to source capital for will influence what your loan terms will look like. An Aquamore team member will be able to discuss this with you in detail when you contact us to discuss your proposal. 

How long does a commercial loan typically last?

The specific terms of your loan will depend on the nature of your project. At aquamore, we offer funding from 3 to 24 months.

How do I qualify for a commercial property loan?

There are several factors that will be taken into account when assessing your eligibility for a commercial property loan. As a lender, we look at the financial health of your business currently as well as historic performance. The amount you’re currently owing on any outstanding debts will also be a factor in addition to existing assets and what deposit you’re in a position to put down on the property. This is typically required to be between 25-30% depending on the location of the property you’re purchasing.

What is the difference between a business loan and a commercial loan?

Essentially, these two loan types are one and the same with the primary difference being the phrasing used. A business or commercial loan is designed to support business owners to grow and develop their enterprise, opening up new opportunities and increasing turnover.

What is the difference between a commercial loan and a residential loan?

Residential loans are targeted to prospective or existing homeowners, allowing them to enter the domestic property market and own their own home. Commercial loans are established for developers or business owners looking to grow their property portfolio or undertake a real estate development project or grow their business. Commercial loans typically incur higher interest rates than residential loans due to their nature and will be in place on a shorter term basis than residential loans.
