Frequently asked questions
We provide high quality, professional photos and floor plans at no cost to you whatsoever.
We do all the viewings and open days.
We can give you a rough guide without seeing the property, for a more accurate valuation our Sales Director will visit your property.
A property sourcing agent is somebody who works on behalf of clients who are looking to buy property (as a buy-to-let investment) but are time poor, based overseas or want professional guidance.
Most definitely not! The London property market is so buoyant and fast paced that you shouldn’t be on the market for more than 8 weeks if you want to achieve the best price. Offering such a long marketing period is a negative proposition and only shows they have no plan/strategy/buyers for your property or the skill or experience to advise you on the correct marketing price. We offer an 8 week contract.
We cover all of London within the M25.

What our customers say
Elephant & Castle
EXLA London really know their stuff, we had tried selling our ex-council flat with another agent who kept finding buyers but the buyers kept on getting refused a mortgage, they then told us we could only sell to a cash buyer. We asked EXLA to come and have a look and they were confident banks would lend and that the buyers just hadn’t been advised correctly on which banks would lend on our style of property. EXLA found us a buyer, pointed the buyer in the right direction and we exchanged in May 2018. Selling a council property isn’t always as straight forward as selling other properties so it makes sense to use someone who specialises in selling them. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend EXLA London.
“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!!!”
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.

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!
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.
“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.”
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!
Chris and his team offer a very down to earth and honest approach which frankly puts them way ahead. Very happy with the service they provide me as a landlord so very happy to recommend them, Dan Mullins
“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.”
