A major problem with normal commercial property finance is that it is slow to be approved because it relies on a valuation to be performed, which can take several days. Normal commercial property lenders can also take a long time to assess your loan. If you don't have time for this then you may need to use a short term commercial loan. Some short term commercial lenders use alternative methods to to value a property such as an internal desktop valuation or other ways that do not require them to wait for the valuation report from a valuer.
Settlement can be within 48 hours if all of the criteria are met.
