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.
