Our one stop service

LCP specialises in maximising investors’ returns in the rental sector in Prime Central London (PCL). We are not simply a buying agent but provide a holistic approach to asset management, including property sourcing, renovation, interior design, letting and management. All underpinned by sophisticated financial modelling and all handled under one roof.

The investment process

Sourcing & Acquisition - London Central Portfolio Limited

Sourcing & Acquisition

Unlike UK estate agents who act for the seller, LCP acts for you, the buyer. We represent your interests and help formulate your budget and brief. We then screen the whole of the Prime Central London (PCL) market, for the best properties to meet your requirements. Ideal rental investments consist of small, well-located flats which are scarce and in high demand. LCP’s reputation ensures we hear about them first.

We put together a recommended shortlist with in-depth financial analysis, including projected costs, fees and rents. Following your final selection, we negotiate the best possible price for you as your buying agent and manage the whole purchase process, meeting tight deadlines in a competitive market.

Refurbishment & Design - London Central Portfolio Limited

Refurbishment & Design

Stock in Central London usually requires complete refurbishment as it is typically located in period buildings and rarely change hands. As project manager and design consultant, LCP provide detailed specifications and fixed price quotes, working with a selected team of contractors.

We complete works on time and to budget, furnishing each property immediately after renovation, so it can be let straightaway. By creating a boutique ‘hotel-style’ look we maximise the properties appeal to blue-chip tenants and create a significant capital uplift – a crucial part of the investment strategy.

Letting & Management - London Central Portfolio Limited

Letting & Management

With each rental investment, our key objective is to deliver the highest returns and best quality tenant, as quickly as possible. LCP proactively market so flats let quickly and our occupancy rates run in excess of 96%.

We reference and meet all potential tenants and provide responsible, accountable property management. LCP acts on your behalf at all times, ideal if you want to delegate all day-to-day aspects of property management. LCP specialises in acting for off-shore landlords.

Home seeker service - London Central Portfolio Limited

Home seeker & concierge service

Alongside our specialist service for rental investment, we assist home seekers wishing to acquire a property in PCL. We will search on and off market until we find exactly what you want. However, we are not simply a buying agent, our integrated service includes acquisition, refurbishment and interior design.

Using our in-house resource, LCP also offers concierge services and provides vacant management for owners who only use their properties periodically. LCP will settle your bills, pay your staff and cater for special requests, before, during and after your stay.

Real estate advisory - London Central Portfolio Limited

Real estate advisory service

With both owners and fiduciaries looking to maximise the returns of prime London assets, LCP can assist through its real estate advisory service.

LCP can also provide a coordinated supervisory and maintenance service to ensure existing assets are managed effectively.
