Titlesolv, the leading provider of title insurance and indemnity solutions for the property market in the UK and Ireland, has today announced the appointment of Paul Denholm as Specialist Underwriter, Planning & Judicial Review. He brings to bear significant expertise specifically around the planning process and the complex risk challenges it can often represent for developers, investors and property owners alike.
Paul will be working alongside the team at the recently re-launched Titlesolv to provide specialist risk management solutions for the acquisition, ownership, use and development across the full spectrum of the property sector.
He joins the Titlesolv team from a Local Planning Authority, where he specialised in all aspects of planning, including development control, public inquiries, and planning-related litigation. He has a particular understanding of judicial review and planning enforcement risk in the public sector.
Titlesolv was re-launched at the end of 2013 to combine two existing brands within the title insurance and professional indemnity space, London & European and Titlesolv, and has quickly become the partner of choice for institutional lenders, investors and solicitors alike. Today’s expansion of the Titlesolv team comes on the back of rapidly growing demand for new and flexible risk management solutions across all areas of the property sector. During the last two quarters of 2013, Titlesolv was instrumental in the placement of title indemnity insurance for a number of high profile transactions and was selected as the preferred insurer for these transactions amongst rivals.
Chris Taylor, Chief Executive of Titlesolv, said:
“We are very pleased to have Paul on board. His appointment comes at an opportune time, as the changing regulatory environment around planning creates a host of new challenges. We will benefit significantly from Paul’s extensive experience in the planning arena, ensuring we remain at the forward edge of being able to deliver innovative solutions and high quality of service and expertise for our clients.”
Paul Denholm added:
“It is a particularly exciting time to be joining Titlesolv, as the business expands following the re-launch and whilst changes to the planning system and a growing demand for land mean clients require a deeper range of advice and support. I am very much looking forward to working with the team at Titlesolv to tackle these issues and address its client’s unique challenges.”
