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
“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!!!”
Very good experience, paperwork was quick and easy, and the place was as described and really relaxed.
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
We had been on the market with a we’ll known local agent who despite almost 40 viewings hadn’t found us a buyer. We decided to give EXLA London a try and within a couple of weeks we had agreed a sale and are now moving into our new home. They showed far less people but had the right type of buyers for this type of property. The fact they specialise in ex-council properties really makes a difference! There was great communication throughout the sales process (which I really appreciate!) and nothing was too much trouble for them, they really did go the extra mile. Thanks again EXLA, great job.
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!
EXLA London have rented my property from me and looked after it since October 2017. The rent has been paid in full and on time every month without fail. I am also trying to sell the property at the same time and EXLA London have been very helpful arranging viewings with the tenants. I have also been to the property with the agent selling my property and it has always looked clean and well kept. I am very impressed with their service and would happily and confidently recommend EXLA London to anyone wanting to rent their property.
“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.”

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 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
“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.”
