London’s only ex-council estate agent
We are proud to be London’s only estate agent that specialises exclusively in selling ex-local authority properties
London’s Best Council Block Competition 2021
Our understanding of these types of properties makes us the best placed agent in the market to sell or rent your EX-LA property
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 unrivaled 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.

What our customers say
We had been on the market with a local estate agent for a few months with no results and no advise or contact really, we felt like we had been forgotten. I received a letter from EXLA London and agreed to let them market my property. We received an offer from an investor and we have just moved into our new home. EXLA London really do have the right buyers for council properties, they worked so hard for us and we probably wouldn’t have sold without their knowledge and expertise.
“EXLA London were excellent, I had my flat on a multi agent contract with a few big name agents but had nothing happen for months, Chris then came on board and they sold it within four weeks of signing with them. They helped me all through the sale contacting the solicitors and making sure I was informed at all stages of the purchase. I would recommend to any buyers or sellers of X council properties to sign up with EXLA. Excellent service!”
From the very start, compared to the other estate agents I met, EXLA London and Christian Dugard displayed genuine enthusiasm for helping me to sell my flat – and of the 3 valuations I sought from 3 different types of agents, EXLA London’s was the most realistic and fair – yet not the lowest! As matters progressed and hurdles appeared, where other agents would undoubtedly have cared less and may even have thrown in the towel, EXLA London’s enthusiasm turned into determination and they went out of their way to help me to reach completion. Ex-Local Authority property is not always an easy-sell and many estate agents don’t care less about them. So when trying to sell this type of property, having faith in an estate agent is difficult, but this being EXLA London’s sole purpose, along with that personal touch and the extra pushes they give, gave me faith in them right from the outset and I’m really pleased that I chose EXLA London and recommend them wholeheartedly.
I currently rent a 3 bedroom flat through EXLA in Elephant and Castle . Chris is one of the kindest agent I ever met in my 20 Years living in London .
I can only say that he takes care of the property’s and his tenants. If there is any problem at the flat or any issues don’t worry they are fixing for you on the same day or next day.
Once you rent through EXLA you stay with them for long time.
Thank you Chris
Elephant & Castle
Chris was very accommodating in writing up and agreeing the contract regarding dates and moving in and out. Flat I lived in was nice and am happy with the service overall.
Elephant & Castle
Currently renting with them, they provide a quality service. When we moved in, our sink was blocked as my flatmate dropped a piece of make up in it. Next day, EXLA provided a plumber and it was all fixed. Highly recommended!
Chris is incredibly quick and responsive when addressing any issues within the flat. He’s very reasonable in pricing and as helpful as they come. Thanks Chris.
Elephant & Castle
“EXLA London provided an excellent customer service from start to finish of the sale process. They were professional, approachable, friendly and positive and made the selling process feel calm and run smoothly. Communication was simple and efficient and often outside normal office hours.
I would recommend Chris and EXLA to anyone wishing to sell their home. They clearly have a depth of knowledge and understanding of the ex-Local Authority property market.”
Elephant & Castle, London
“Thank you EXLA London, we had been with another estate agent and nothing had happened for over 6 months. We found EXLA and their expertise with ex-council properties was evident from the start , getting us viewings and then offers almost immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend EXLA London to anyone who wants to sell an ex-council property.”
“It was a pleasure purchasing our flat through EXLA London. From the start they were very efficient, friendly, and honest. Having dealt with many estate agents over the years we can without a doubt say that EXLA provide a service that exceeds the standards of any we have previously experienced, it was a breath of fresh air. We would have no hesitations about using EXLA again and would highly recommend them to anyone else looking for an effective and honest estate agents.”
