If you want to expand your business, you should consider obtaining an industrial or commercial mortgage. Knowing the differences between these two types of mortgages is essential before you start applying for one.

What types of properties are industrial mortgages best suited for?

An Ontario industrial mortgage is a specific type of commercial mortgage. Industrial mortgages are designed to be used for certain kinds of properties, such as mixed-used sites or single-purpose industrial buildings.

These are some examples of Ontario locations that would be suitable for an industrial mortgage:

  • Production or manufacturing facility
  • Auto shop
  • Logistics facility
  • Storage facility

What will a lender want to see if I apply for an Ontario industrial mortgage?

When you apply for any type of commercial mortgage, your potential lender will want to know things like your financial history and credit score. When you apply for an industrial mortgage, they’ll also want you to provide specific documentation, like your business plan for the industrial property and, potentially, an environmental impact report.

Since lenders are looking at lending you a large amount of money, when it comes to giving you an Ontario industrial mortgage, they will want specific details in your business plan. You need to be able to tell them everything, from what you want to use the site for to whether you plan to live on-site or rent it out to tenants.

What are some conditions that apply to industrial and commercial mortgages?

The following conditions apply to both types of mortgages:

  • They are for commercial real estate, not residential properties.
  • The borrower is usually a company or a business, not an individual.
  • The rates tend to be higher for these types of mortgages than residential ones.
