Some of our lenders

And we have a comprehensive understanding of their lending criteria too. We can help with both commercial mortgages and semi-commercial mortgages, offering good commission and no up-front fees.
Why can’t I access these specialist lenders directly?
To control the flow and quality of submissions these specialist lenders only allow a handful of brokers to join their panels. Mortgages for Business has developed strong relationships with these lenders, which has enabled us to have the power to negotiate the best mortgage rates and terms for clients.

Whether you are looking to place deals for investors or businesses, we can help across a variety of market sectors including retail, office, industry and leisure.
In almost all circumstances we do not charge any upfront fees, including a broker fee to your clients. Your client remains your client, so broker fees are for you to charge.
We offer commission up to 0.75%. This figure is dependent on the chosen lender and worked out on a case by case basis.
