Timothy is a Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer specialising in housing management litigation for Registered Providers and Local Authorities. He joined Capsticks in 2017.
Timothy was called to the bar in 2010 and worked as a freelance County Court Advocate on behalf of landlords and financial institutions. His day-to-day work included possession hearings for mortgage and rent arrears, charging order applications and small claims trials.
In 2014 Timothy joined One Housing and worked in-house on claims for possession on the grounds of anti-social behaviour, tenancy fraud and failed succession, for unlawful profit orders, and for injunctions under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, as well as interim applications within those proceedings. He frequently dealt with issues relating to public law, human rights and the Equality Act.
- Successfully obtained a possession order for One Housing following a two-day trial after a lodger of a deceased former tenant failed to succeed to the tenancy of the property, and continued to conduct the litigation in respect of the appeal that followed, culminating in the dismissal of the lodger’s appeal and the setting of a new precedent on succession law.
- Procured a Tomlin order requiring a former tenant who sublet their London flat from abroad to repay over £13,000 of unlawful profit.
