Commercial property loans set for new high

Research by Laxfield Capital and the Property Finance Forum has revealed that real estate financiers received more than £11bn of new loan requests in the second and third quarters, putting lending secured against UK commercial property on track to exceed last year's £45bn of financing from banks and other institutions, creating a fresh post-crisis high. Analysis of the data shows demand is spreading out regionally, and there are a lot of acquisition-related regional finance requests. Average loan-to-value ratios remained fairly constant at 56%, while highly leveraged requests fell slightly. However, almost half of all loan requests during the period were for more than 65% of values.
