Why we do it
At Temple Field we are passionate about residential property and passionate about London, which we consider to be the ‘Capital of the World’.
We believe that now is a good time for investing in London’s residential market. The Capital shows political stability, strengthening economic and employment growth, increasing domestic and international demand and major infrastructure improvements. At the same time, deep liquidity and transaction transparency combine to make it a uniquely desirable place to own property.
London is fast becoming the World’s first choice as a destination for long term capital into residential property.
Who we are
Ben Temple established Temples London in 1999 to provide acquisition, project management and leasing management services for residential property investors. Ben sold his business in 2013 in order to focus purely on investment acquisitions for clients.

Claire Norwood has been buying, selling and renovating houses for 15 years. Creative projects she has worked on have been featured in The Times (Bricks & Mortar), the Financial Times, the London Evening Standard, Vogue, Elle and Grazia Magazine.
How We Add Value
- Through our network of estate agents and landlords we regularly receive pre-market and even off-market opportunities.
- Approximately 50% of all general market sales fall through between acceptance of offer and exchange. This figure is virtually zero for Temple Field Property. Why?
- By providing more certainty to vendors, agents will often recommend our offer ahead of any competition.
- Apart from a nominal engagement fee we do not charge unless we make a successful acquisition.
- Ben Temple has advised on over 150 residential investments in London, none of which have been loss-making. We estimate the average annual total return on equity (net income and capital uplift) to date, from an unaudited sample of predominantly unrealised investments exceeds 14%, assuming no borrowing is involved. Assuming borrowing of 75% LTV, this percentage is approximately 50%*.
