EXLA London is an estate agency that specialises in selling, letting and managing ex-local authority properties.

With the average property price in London around £500,000, the smart money is investing in ex-local authority properties as they continue to rise in popularity. Not only because they offer the best value per square foot, but because ex-locals were not built for profit like new-build apartments, therefore you get a better build quality, solid brick walls, larger rooms, more storage and separate kitchens. As a buy to let investment, the lower price entry point, increasing demand from tenants and higher than average rental yields make them the right option for a proficient investor.



We love ex locals because we know first-hand how beneficial they can be.  This insight drove us to set up London’s only estate agency to specialise exclusively in selling, letting and managing ex-local authority properties.



Buying and selling ex-council properties isn’t always straight forward, but our unrivalled experience will help avoid the potential obstacles, and our buyer and investor network will get your property in front of the right audience.

We aren’t interested in warehouse conversions, or penthouse apartments, you can be sure that selling your ex-council property is our top priority! How many other agents can say that?

We are located in Central London, cover the entire Capital, and have years of experience in selling all types of ex-local authority properties, from regular low-rise buildings in sought after locations, to high-rise or unmortgageable properties that require a bit more expertise.

We would love to hear from you if you would like to find out more about the benefits of buying an ex-local authority property, or if you’re a seasoned investor or hedge fund looking for guaranteed, high-yield returns from day one.
