A Note from CEO, Naomi Heaton 

Following a marked pick up at the beginning of the year as the initial shock of Brexit and tax changes washed through, Theresa May's recent announcement of a 'snap' UK General Election, scheduled for 8th June, may herald a further period of uncertainty.

With sales volumes already at a historic low, it is likely that transactions will remain slow over the summer period. 
As buyers adopt a wait and see attitude, investors should look to take
advantage of a period of reduced competition, whilst the slide of sterling has not yet reversed. It is anticipated that a clearer Government mandate about the Brexit process by the end of the year will result in increased certainty with hardening prices.   

Whatever the final outcome, you can read my recent interview in industry publication PrimeResi on why Prime Central London's mainstream Private Rented Sector is still coming out on top - and how to maximise returns.
 

LCP in the News
 

Following the impact of Brexit and the UK Government's residential tax changes, LCP has been discussing the outlook for the rest of the year with the global press. Our research has been published in Reuters and the follow up interview can be viewed here.

As the only company to offer property funds targeting PCL's Private Rented Sector, providing significant tax breaks, these have also generated significant media interest. You can read the latest article by Fund Strategy here which looks at our Sharia compliant funds, the only ones in the sector.

Living Boldly:
Featuring Naomi Heaton's home

 
Naomi was delighted to be asked by glossy interiors magazine Homes and Antiques to feature her home in their March issue. She had the privilege of being interviewed by renowned social commentator and columnist Peter York with shots by leading interiors photographer Andreas Von Einsiedel 

Described as a bold decorator, suffusing her Nash-designed property with colour and collections, you can take a look at her eclectic home here. A far cry from the contemporary interiors and neutral palettes which are the trademark of LCP's rental portfolio.

Day in the life of a Letting Agent

There is a great buzz in the lettings team this morning. Having listed a one bedroom property for £515 per week on Monday, we agree a budget-busting price of £600 per week by Thursday. In the heart of London’s theatre district, tenants were almost falling over themselves to secure this urban, edgy newly refurbished property. After a number of viewings, a bidding war took place between a Canadian student and a professional couple who work in the City.
