Commercial Lending

The term used for business bank loans. Commercial lending can be placed on the property purchased at auction, or it can be charged against a different asset by the borrower. This allows the borrower to ‘drawdown’ funds to purchase a property, but does not necessarily mean the loan is secured on the property bought.


This ‘Glossary of Terms’ – those commonly used in the realm of property auctions, is monitored and updated regularly to remain a current reference point.
