Tim qualified as a solicitor in 2006 spending his entire career in property disputes with a particular emphasis on commercial landlord & tenant and lease renewals. Much of Tim’s experience has been gained from providing portfolio management advice to the UK’s largest telecoms companies, household name retailers, and travel agencies.

About Tim

Tim’s experience of commercial property dispute matters includes:

  • Service of Notices
  • Opposed and unopposed lease renewal claims
  • Interim rent
  • PACT
  • Dilapidations
  • Disputed break notices
  • All aspects of landlord & tenant breach of covenant

Tim regularly presents seminars and in-house training on the above topics to both clients and RICS Surveyors.

In addition to Tim’s commercial practice, he has a wealth of knowledge in residential and domestic property issues, including trusts of land (particularly in a cohabitation context), restrictive covenants, and general land law advice.

Tim’s career began in Oxfordshire and has also seen him practise in Birmingham (Shakespeare Martineau) and Leamington Spa (Wright Hassall). He joined Royds Withy King in 2015 and has a presence in both the Oxford and London offices.


Tim is a member of the Property Litigation Association

“I enjoy the challenges of adapting my legal advice to the ever changing market forces which impact on landlords, tenants, and individuals. I will always seek to understand the legal issue from my clients’ perspective in order to find a solution which, where possible, arrives at a commercially acceptable result without exhausting the full court process. For that reason, I am a passionate advocate of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).”
