Understanding a chattel mortgage for your business
A secured loan to get your business running
When it comes to running a successful business, getting the right loan for a vehicle or equipment can make life a lot easier.
A chattel mortgage can be a great option. And at Aussie, we’ll help you understand what it is, and how it might benefit your business.
What is a chattel mortgage?
It’s a type of business loan that is generally used to purchase most types of business assets, equipment and vehicles. Basically, when it comes to a chattel mortgage, your loan is secured against the ‘goods’ purchased – which can include movable property like furniture, machinery, equipment and vehicles.
How does it work?
Just like other loans, you’ll make repayments according to an agreed schedule for a fixed term – usually one to five years. When you make the purchase, you’ll take ownership of the vehicle or equipment. The lender then takes a mortgage over the asset – removing it once you’ve repaid your entire loan.
The amount you borrow depends on the asset being financed. But the good thing is, chattel mortgages usually have a fixed interest rate, which makes budgeting a lot easier.
