Loans for different situations
Secured business loans to meet your needs
We provide the finances that your business needs quickly and easily, secured on your residential home, commercial premises or investment properties. Our loans can be used for a range of business uses including paying a tax bill, relieving cash flow issues and investing in further property.
Our loans are available to individuals and limited companies, as well as to foreign nationals, based in the UK and abroad, and British expatriates.
We can also accept automated valuations, using data from a range of existing databases to automatically calculate a value for the property that the loan will be secured against , greatly reducing the timescales and costs required.
Why choose a Together Business loan?
We can secure the loan against all manner of properties – even if you already have a mortgage on it; this loan will run alongside, but independent of, any existing borrowing.

You can use a secured business loan for a handful of different purposes, including:

✓Consolidate business debts
✓Refurbish a commercial or buy-to-let property
✓Invest in staff, stock or equipment to grow your business
✓Raise the deposit you need to purchase an investment property
How it works
When you take out a secured business loan, you borrow a lump sum of cash against your commercial or investment property and repay it in monthly instalments (including interest) over an agreed number of years.
It has its own rate and terms, and you'll make repayments on both this and your existing mortgage (such as a buy-to-let mortgage or commercial term).
You could repay less overall
A commercial business loan has its own rate and terms so you could borrow over a shorter period than remains on your current term, which means you may pay back less in the long term compared to remortgaging.
You’ll get to keep your existing mortgage rate
If you’ve already got a good existing mortgage deal or your credit has worsened since taking out your first mortgage, remortgaging to raise the funds could mean paying a higher interest rate on the whole new mortgage. Taking out a secured business loan means you would only be paying the higher rate and extra interest on the new amount you want to borrow.
You could avoid Early Repayment Charges
If your current term has a high early repayment charge, it might be cheaper for you to take out a secured commercial loan rather than remortgaging to release equity from your property.

Common questions about secured business loans
What is a secured business loan?
Secured business loans are also known as secured commercial loans or second charge mortgages.
Unlike remortgaging, a secured business loan runs alongside (but completely separate to) your current term and is secured against the equity you have in your commercial or investment property. This is the difference between the value of your property and the amount you still owe on your first term.
Taking out a commercial secured loan means you can keep your existing deal – which could be particularly valuable if either interest rates have gone up or your credit rating has gone down. However, keep in mind that you’ll have two mortgages to pay off on the property instead of one, and both payments are equally as important.
What can I use as collateral for a business loan?
Our flexible approach means we can consider lending against commercial property of a huge range of constructions, types and uses.
- An investment or rental property
- A retail unit
- A factory or warehouse
- An office
We’ll also consider other premises such as restaurants, takeaways, hotels, day centres, leisure facilities and farms.
