LCP Private: May Issue
A note from CEO, Naomi Heaton

"Average prices in Prime Central London have broken the £2 million barrier for the fourth consecutive month.  Quarterly transactions however,  at just 975 remain low at  levels last seen after the introduction of the Additional Rate Stamp Duty in April 2016.

The wait and see attitude of both investors and property owners continues and as most current vendors need to sell, there are some very good opportunities for the few buyers in the market."

The Review: London Primed 

"Naomi Heaton, CEO of London Central Portfolio, set up one of the first buying agencies in the UK in 1990. Offering a one stop asset management service, it specialises in maximising investors’ returns in central London’s most prestigious boroughs, The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and The City of Westminster.

As the UK heads towards Brexit and residential tax changes continue to reverberate through the property market, there has never been a more 
pertinent time to seek expert property investment advice. Sophisticated investor or not, market knowledge and sound financial analysis from a seasoned industry player is always the key to success."

LCP acts on behalf of investors, to identify properties offering the best returns in Prime Central London. These range from one and two bedroom rental investments and pied-a-terres to freehold blocks, serviced apartments and hotels. Click on the links to see some case studies. We are seeing excellent opportunities as many sellers are highly motivated and increasingly accepting discounts, with fewer buyers around. However, as investor sentiment returns, prices are likely to harden in such a small and globally desirable market.
Offering a total investment solution, LCP also undertakes refurbishment, design, letting and management. If you are considering investing, contact Sophie Shahrokh, Search & Acquisitions on +44(0)20 7723 1733 or

LCPAca Residential Index: May 2018

London Central Portfolio, in conjunction with independent analysts Acadata, have launched the LCPAca Residential Index. This is designed to provide the most comprehensive dataset available, tracking residential property prices and volumes within England & Wales, Greater London and Prime Central London.
