Merchant Money provides commercial loans up to £500k without any LTV restriction
By Rhiannon Carpio, Commercial Partnerships at Merchant Money
The term ‘secured loan’ has several defining characteristics. Typically, it describes a low LTV product, a property charge, a long processing time combined with high legal and valuation costs. It can work out expensive for your clients and is almost always a lengthy, time consuming process for everyone involved. At Merchant Money, we have a straightforward solution: a commercial loan, driven by affordability. Because we are confident that our underwriters will fully assess a client’s ability to pay both now and moving forward, and because we are fully committed to only funding businesses we believe in; we don’t have any fixed LTV restrictions.
We review each application on its own merits and utilise various types of security depending on the business itself – we may very well require a property charge but that is not determined by set LTV criteria, depending on the deal itself we could lend over and above 100% LTV. There are many occasions where we are just as likely to accept a debenture, commercial premises, land or card takings. For the right deals, we can fund up to £150,000 on PG’s alone without the need for a property charge. Besides, if there is a strong business where the client accepts card takings, we can consider up to our maximum of £500,000, even if the Directors are not homeowners.
When we do require a charge, it doesn’t slow us down. We still commit to funding within 48 hours without charging additional fees to your clients. Because we take the time to understand your client’s requirements and business we can create truly bespoke solutions that other funders simply not have the flexibility to put together, arrangements that take into account the whole picture. We want to see where a business has been, but also where its headed and how it is going to get there.
