DID YOU KNOW...?
The average rental yield of an investment property in London is in the region of 4-5%. An experienced BTL landlord with an ex-council property may average closer to 6-7%. However, with careful management of the property, we can achieve yields in excess of 8% for our investors.
Average purchase price of a 3 bedroom maisonette in a well-connected Zone 2 postcode - £425,000
Market rental value - £2100
Average net yield – 6%
Achievable rental value through an EXLA managed let - £3000
Net yield – 8.5%
Why isn’t everybody doing this? Because it’s a LOT of work. However, for a small monthly percentage of the income we can manage the entire process for you.
In addition to maximising your returns, with years of experience in dealing with inner London councils, we can also help to guide you through the ever-changing legislation, increasingly demanding licensing regulations and absorb any of those increased costs through a higher rental return.
- Increase your returns by up to 25%.
- Full property management service included.
- Full tenant-find and marketing service.
- 24-hour emergency call-out service.
- No lengthy contracts.
- No up-front agency fees.

What our customers say
Greengrass Property Ltd
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.
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.
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.

“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.”

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.
