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
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
“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!”
Excellent service! I currently rent a flat through EXLA and I must say that since I live in the UK they are the best company I’ve worked with. Chris is always willing to help with any inconvenience and makes sure that everything is in order at the property. Great work guys!
“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
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!
Very good experience, paperwork was quick and easy, and the place was as described and really relaxed.
We had tried to sell our property for the last couple of years but EXLA were the agent that actually sold it for us and their fees were also very competitive. They helped all the way through from start to finish, especially with some difficult negotiations that kept the sale together.
I was with an online agent and hadn’t managed to get any offers or any advice really on what I needed to do. I heard about EXLA London and that they specialise in ex local authority properties so decided to give them a try. They were very proactive and called me regularly to let me know what they were doing and what was going on. They got me an offer that I was happy to accept and we completed on the sale just before Christmas. Thanks for your help with my property, it’s nice to know there’s an agent out there who priorities council properties.
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

“I can’t give enough credit to EXLA London! I had put my property on the market with Foxtons for over a year so I had had enough, I then came across EXLA (Chris) and the moment I met him we hit it off right away, I had not had a single offer despite how good or big Foxtons was but Chris got me a viewer straight away and also my first offer. The sale took less then 3 months as it was a cash buyer and we only had 5 months left before repossession. These guys are incredible and I couldn’t have done it so quick without these guys.
I would recommend to everyone who is selling a ex-council property to give them a go and see for yourselves. Thank you!!!”
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.
