Team Profiles

Tim Townsend

Position: Partner
Work Area: Property Services
Accreditations: I am a member of the Law Society Property Section.

Specialisms

I advise road haulage clients about drivers' hours and operators licensing issues and I represent them at public inquiries. I advise clients who own listed commercial and residential properties where the ability to make alterations is strictly controlled and there are obligations to maintain them. I also act on the sale and purchase of equine properties.

Interests

After many years involvement with the committee of Canterbury Junior Hockey Club I have taken a back seat, but remain a Vice President of Canterbury Men's Hockey Club. I continue to enjoy watching hockey especially when my children are playing.

What leisure time I have is spent racing sailboats. I compete nationally and internationally in a popular class of sailing dinghy and am also involved in race management as a regional race officer.

Interesting Cases

With advances in mapping techniques (using GPS) over the last 20 years or so, clients are increasingly finding themselves in situations where the position of the boundaries on the ground is not reflected in the Land Registry records. Most often this involves the need to make application for ownership of unregistered land. Recently, however, I had the unusual task of sorting out a situation where parcels of farmland were registered in two separate titles at the same time. With the help of the Land Registry and my clients’ neighbouring landowners we managed to resolve the situation to my clients’ satisfaction.

Personal Mission Statement

“I want my clients to feel that they have achieved what they set out to achieve, that they have received value for money from me and my staff and that we have been an invaluable help to them during the process. I want them to leave our offices feeling we will be the first port of call for them and their family on any matter in the future.”
