LCP Private: August Issue
LCP during Lockdown
Despite unprecedented circumstances, LCP was able to maintain a degree of momentum during the UK lockdown restrictions. PCL’s safe haven status still remained relevant to overseas investors seeking to benefit from the rule of law, GMT time zone, prestigious schools and universities and an attractive Sterling exchange rate. 
Property Acquisition
During the enforced lockdown, overseas clients were able to use LCP's exclusive buying service to identify the best opportunities, negotiate price discounts and manage the acquisition for them. In all, seven properties were acquired within the ever-popular districts of South Kensington, Notting Hill and Marylebone. These will be added to LCP's rental portfolio once they have been refurbished and interior designed by LCP's expert Projects team.
Interior Design & Refurbishment
With a proven track record of using clever design to optimise space, LCP keep a keen eye on budgets to maximise rental returns. Recreating the designer-look of a boutique hotel, LCP's managed flats appeal to the executive tenant seeking the London lifestyle. Despite the logistical difficulties during lockdown, LCP were able to complete three refurbishment projects. View our gallery or case studies to see examples of our refurbishments.
Expert Letting & Property Management
With each rental investment, our main focus is to deliver the highest returns and best quality tenant. LCP only rents in its own managed portfolio, delivering the best results for its clients. LCP conducts proactive marketing campaigns and in lockdown achieved outstanding occupancy rates, in excess of 94%. LCP removes all the day-to-day stress of property management for clients who want to be 'hands off' whilst knowing their properties are well maintained. 
Message from Andrew Weir, new Chief Executive at LCP
I am delighted to be sending you the latest LCP Private newsletter in my capacity as the new Chief Executive. Prior to joining LCP, I have gained over 30 years' sales and lettings experience in PCL.  Looking forward, we are hopeful PCL is set for a bounce back this Autumn as we anticipate an increase in demand. With travel restrictions expected to be lifted, a temporary SDLT holiday and a 2% surcharge on SDLT commencing in April 2021, we expect investors and home movers to take advantage of this opportunity to acquire at bottom of market pricing in PCL.
