The growing demand for ex-local authority properties.

  • Often situated in prime locations in every London borough. Cheaper, larger and often very close to transport links, stadiums, universities and hospitals. Ideal for both buy-to-live or buy-to-let.
  • Never built for profit. Solid build quality, larger rooms built for living - well-located ex-local authority properties regularly achieve rents not dissimilar to those of expensive, private, modern builds.
  • Lower entry price-points mean rental yields far above the London average.
  • Given their layouts and size, many ex-local properties have fantastic potential to convert and add more bedrooms, further increasing the yield and capital value.
  • Local authority freeholders mean low service charges, peppercorn ground rents and protection from soaring overheads often associated with private developments.
  • Since 2014, the prices of ex-local authority properties in certain parts of London have actually risen faster than those in private homes and new-build developments.
  • As right-to-buy continues, more and more flats in council blocks are becoming privately owned, making mortgages easier to obtain, increasing the capital appreciation of your investment as time goes on.
