Our Specialist Buying Service

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

Our one stop service

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 screen the whole of the Prime Central London (PCL) market for the best properties to meet your requirements. LCP’s reputation ensures we hear about them first.

We put together a recommended shortlist with in-depth financial analysis. Following your final selection, we negotiate the best possible price 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 project manager and design consultant, LCP provides detailed specifications and fixed price quotes, working with a selected team of contractors.

We complete works on time and to budget, furnishing each property after renovation, so it can be quickly let. Creating a boutique ‘hotel-style’ look, we maximise the property's appeal to 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 94%.

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 rental investment service, we assist home seekers looking for a property in PCL. We search on and off market until we find exactly what you want. However, we are not simply a buying agent, our one stop service includes acquisition, refurbishment and interior design.

LCP also provides concierge services and vacant management for owners who only use their properties periodically. LCP will settle your bills, pay your staff and cater for your requests, before, during and after your stay.

Managed Sales - London Central Portfolio Limited

Managed Sales

LCP assists its clients throughout the investment process from beginning to end representing your best interests at all times. That means that if you, as our client, ever decide to divest, we will work on your behalf to ensure your property is sold as quickly as possible and at the highest possible price.

LCP's in-depth knowledge of the market means that we can use our extensive network of contacts as well as selecting the best local agents to add to your marketing firepower. We will always approve and check property particulars, monitor sales progress, liaise with lawyers and respond to enquiries to achieve a successful transaction.

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.
