Clare deals with all aspects of residential conveyancing, including freehold and leasehold transactions, re-mortgages, right-to-buy and transfers of equity.

She joined Girlings in 2015 as a Solicitor and was attracted by the personal approach of the firm and the variety of work. She enjoys meeting with clients in person as well as maintaining contact through email and telephone calls.

She won an award for client care at her previous firm and is focussed on delivering the highest standard of service to all her clients. As a conveyancer one of Clare’s most memorable experiences is having a client scream with joy after calling to inform them that completion had taken place and they could collect the keys to their new home.

As a recent first-time-buyer herself, Clare understands the pressures of the transaction from both sides.
