TAB’s first charge commercial loans are secured against UK commercial properties. Common uses of first charge loans include the purchase of investment properties where finance is needed quickly, investment property chain breakers, capital raises on unencumbered properties, completion of refurbishment on investment properties or a refinance of properties.
TAB lends directly to borrowers or through intermediaries. We offer commercial loans of up to 70% of the valuation of your project, including the cost of borrowing. There are no exit fees and the interest rate on the loan is from 0.85%. There are other instances TAB might lend a first charge commercial loan, we can also lend on mixed-use assets as well. Our experience means we can be flexible with our valuations and consider projects that more traditional lenders would not. We pride ourselves on trust and transparency.
TAB loans are unregulated. Any property used as security is at risk of repossession if you do not keep up with your payments.
Other charges may apply
The loan is then matched with investors on the TAB platform. Funds are typically available within just 14 days.

Legal charges provide the lender with a degree of security in the sense that they are made against the value of the borrower’s property. Should the borrower default on the loan, then those who have a legal charge will have the right to take the monies from the sale of the property.
A first charge loan is a loan on a residential or commercial property. In the case of a first charge, TAB will take precedence and first rights on the property. This means that the property could be sold by way of repossession to recover the value of the loan and any associated costs should default occur.
A second charge loan on a residential or commercial property allows you to borrow money, providing there is enough equity whilst leaving your existing first charge in place. A second charge loan applies if you already have a loan secured against a property that already has an outstanding mortgage. For property improvements such as extensions, you would likely need to take out a second charge bridging loan if you already have a mortgage on the property. The distinction lets the lender know who has priority in the repayment if you can’t pay off the loan by the end of the term.
Commercial first charge bridging loans are secured against UK commercial property. They could be used when you are purchasing a new business, or purchasing commercial property as well as auction gaps and when a property chain is broken.
