New senior surveyor an asset in property management

Tim Haine, senior surveyor at Myddelton & Major.

An expanding Wiltshire property consultancy has strengthened its team with an experienced chartered surveyor to meet rising demand for its services.

Myddelton & Major has recruited Tim Haine as a senior surveyor for its well-established property and asset management department.

Tim brings 16 years of experience with firms in the West End of London, Somerset and Southampton to the Salisbury-based firm.

Tim, who is 40 and lives with his young family in Salisbury, said: “Momentum in commercial property continues to grow as we see an increase in demand for leasable space and shrinking availability.

“As landlords and investors continue to seek to maximize returns on their real estate investments we’re increasingly seeing them turning to experts in property management, such as Myddleton & Major, who have a strong regional knowledge and understanding of the local market as well as the expertise to negotiate the ever increasing regulatory burdens being brought to bear on commercial property owners.”

Tim added: “Myddleton & Major is a forward thinking firm with the stability of more than 110 years of experience.

“I look forward to being an active part of the firm’s success in continuing to expand the commercial property management portfolio across Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset.”

Tim’s appointment bolsters Myddelton & Major’s growing property and asset management department where he works closely with partner Robert Pritchard and associate Peter Sammons.

His main responsibilities include the management of multi-let properties such as shopping centres, office buildings and industrial estates as well as individual retail industrial and office properties.

He deals with a range of corporate and private clients alongside occupiers, tenants and contractors.

Philip Holford, a partner at Myddelton & Major, said: “Tim is going to be an important part of our growing commercial property management and professional team.

“As a high calibre surveyor with many years’ experience we hope that he will enhance our service, helping to deliver our clients’ objectives.”

Tim, who is a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS), joins Myddelton & Major from Keygrove Chartered Surveyors in Southampton where he spent 11 years.

He also worked for Montagu Evans for five years in its office in the West End of London, and Cooper and Tanner in Somerset.

Tim’s appointment comes as RICS’s first quarter commercial property market survey pointed to a strong performance in the sector with renewed momentum in the investment and occupier markets.

It also showed demand for leasable space increasing for a tenth successive quarter with available space continuing to fall, particularly in the industrial and office sectors.

Myddelton & Major’s commercial team was named in late 2014 as the most active agency in Wiltshire for the third year running by Estates Gazette, the UK commercial property market’s ‘bible’.
