About me

As a Solicitor in the Real Estate Finance team, I have worked with a range of clients including high street banks, building societies, challenger lenders and those looking to borrow from them. I also work with corporate ‘buy to let’ investors and a range of public house tenants who are often looking to go free-of-tie.

My specialisms include secured lending and borrowing, corporate buy-to-let for both residential and commercial properties, public house lease transactions and residential conveyancing.

Outside of work, I am passionate about sport, carpentry, film and music – but beyond anything else I am most passionate about my beautiful daughter.

Tenacity and hard work leads to property completion and high praise

Clare Day and Tom Matthews were quick to act when Mr and Mrs Griffiths wanted to buy a new property. They turned to them for expertise and advice in both real estate and financial services. Clare and Tom’s tenacity and know-how led to a smooth completion for their client. Following the transaction, Mr Griffiths said: “I cannot recommend Clare Day, Tom Matthews and HCR enough. They were absolutely fantastic from start to finish in quite a complicated and complex purchase. They kept me updated on an almost daily basis and explained everything in a simple to understand manner. “They went above and beyond – including both of them working on days off to achieve a completion as soon as possible for us. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone and very much look forward to working with them in future.”
