Have your customers utilised all the available equity within their portfolio? Do your customers have buy-to-let mortgages with lenders that will not consent? Are your customers tied into a preferential mortgage rate that they wish to protect? A homeowner business loan could be the solution.

We can arrange the funds in days, using automated valuations as well as our in-house legal process.

What is a homeowner business loan?

A homeowner business loan is a form of funding that uses an applicant’s main residential property to raise capital (strictly for business purposes only); therefore, your client must own their own property.

What can a homeowner business loan be used for?

Homeowner business loans can be used for various business purposes, such as buying a premise or equipment, paying off business debts, expanding operations, etc.

How much can my client borrow with a homeowner business loan?

How much your clients can borrow for a homeowner business loan depends on a number of factors:

  • The value of the security
  • The available equity
  • The size of the portfolio
  • The customers income
  • The customer credit profile
  • Purpose of the loan

At Mercantile Trust, we offer homeowner bridging loans from £25,000 up to £250,000.

Why could a homeowner business loan be suitable option my client?

If you have customers that need extra funding to expand their existing business or property portfolio, a homeowner business loan may be the ideal solution.
