With extensive property industry experience and drawing on our own landlord experience, we have created a bespoke service for buy-to-let investors, to not only eradicate the pitfalls but increase their income as well.
With our zero-free, guaranteed rent service, EXLA London would offer you market value for your property and would act as your tenant on a contract length of your choice, giving you peace of mind and security without the worry of void periods, non-payment from tenants, or estate agency fees. We will ensure that your property in maintained to the highest standard, regularly cleaned, inspected and only occupied by fully vetted, professional sharers.
- No letting fees, no management fees, no hidden costs.
- No void periods & rent received on the same day of every month for as long as you wish.
- Our 24-hour maintenance team are on hand to deal with any urgent problems.
- Twice-monthly cleans ensure your property stays in top condition.
- Free, third-party check-in/check-out reports, ensuring your property is returned in the same condition.
- Flexible contracts to give you vacant possession within a month should you need it.
If you want to be completely hands-off with your investment, with a long-term, fixed guaranteed income and absolutely no fees to worry about, then this is the service for you.
If you’re looking to increase your monthly income, then our room let & management service might be the best option for you. For example, if you have a two bedroom property with a separate reception room and kitchen, then you could be renting it as three individual rooms, using the reception room as the third bedroom, with all rooms having access to the shared kitchen and bathroom. We can rent the rooms for you and manage the whole process throughout. The demand for affordable rooms is dramatically increasing in London as flat rents for a lot of people are out of reach, with your average one bed costing around £1200 per month.
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 help to absorb those increased costs through a higher rental return.
- Increase your rental income by up to 20%.
- Full property management service included.
- Full tenant-find and marketing service.
- 24-hour emergency call-out service.

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!!!”
“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.”
“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.”

“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.”

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.

I currently rent a 3 bedroom flat through EXLA in Elephant and Castle . Chris is one of the kindest agent I ever met in my 20 Years living in London .
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.
Once you rent through EXLA you stay with them for long time.
Thank you Chris

Very good experience, paperwork was quick and easy, and the place was as described and really relaxed.
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 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.
I was with an online agent and hadn’t managed to get any offers or any advice really on what I needed to do. I heard about EXLA London and that they specialise in ex local authority properties so decided to give them a try. They were very proactive and called me regularly to let me know what they were doing and what was going on. They got me an offer that I was happy to accept and we completed on the sale just before Christmas. Thanks for your help with my property, it’s nice to know there’s an agent out there who priorities council properties.
