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 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
“As a search agent I work with hundreds of estate agents and I would highly recommend Chris Dugard from EXLA. He is the one of the best agents I have worked with. He showed me properties in various areas while I was looking for a client who wanted to purchase an apartment for his daughter who needed easy access to Shoreditch. I’d viewed all over South London looking near tube stations or easy bus routes but then Chris came up with a property that was just perfect, within budget and walkable to Shoreditch.
He runs an Independent Agency with first class service and has helped make the whole purchase process stress free from beginning to end.”
Greengrass Property Ltd
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.
Very good experience, paperwork was quick and easy, and the place was as described and really relaxed.
Highly recommend after my experience of sale of property. Good advice, easy to deal with, and always on hand with a quick response to any queries. The whole experience was made less stressful, than what could’ve been. Thank you.
“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.”
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!
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!
Chris is always there if you need him. I highly recommend to everyone that you will be not only dealing with the best agency in London but also best person . Currently renting the place with few friends and we are happy that we found Chris.
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.
