Helping to obtain finance
Many businesses do not have the cash flow to make commercial property purchases outright, and leasing is not always the most appropriate option. We work hard to help our clients secure funding that will help their business to thrive, while minimising cost and risk.
Our in-depth knowledge of the commercial property market means that we can ensure each transaction happens as smoothly as possible and on the best terms available.
Our specialist commercial property team helps a wide variety of clients, including:
- Businesses looking to acquire new properties through commercial mortgages
- Businesses looking to acquire new properties through alternative funding models such as crowd-funding
- Businesses and investors looking to refinance existing commercial properties
- Property investors looking to finance new commercial property investment opportunities.
We work with you and the lenders to compile the necessary security documentation and to carry out the necessary searches and enquiries. When a transaction is complete, we register the mortgage documentation at the Land Registry and Companies House on your behalf.
Clients who work with Longmores when they are seeking financing also work with us to buy and sell commercial property or resolve their property disputes [hyperlinks to other sub-service pages].
Examples of our work:
Securing bank financing for a commercial property investor within a very tight timeframe.
Carrying out investigation of title and full due diligence on the £1.65 million bank financing of three industrial units to ensure that the deal could be completed in a timely manner. Longmores were also instructed by the bank in relation to the funding of the purchase and additionally by the client regarding an option agreement with a developer of their existing premises; a transaction made possible by this purchase.
Raising funds to purchase agricultural land for development through crowd-funding.
