    I joined Porter Dodson in November 2015 following a move to Somerset from Devon. I have been working in residential property since 2000.  I head up the Residential Property Team in the Taunton office.

    I have 18 years of experience in all aspects of residential conveyancing, whether it is dealing with registered or unregistered land, freehold or leasehold, including shared ownership properties. 

    By building a relationship with my clients, I tailor my service to them, whether it be technology-based or the more traditional phone call and face to face meetings.

    I am a keen motorsport fan; I have two motorbikes and try to do track days whenever possible. We have three border collies and both myself and my husband are Kennel Club registered judges.


    Excellent and responsive service. Good team work, friendly with a sense of humour.

    The service we received from you was faultless from start to finish, with Claire Hannaford even having our property completed for us just before Christmas. Every phone call or email was responded to within hours and any query fully dealt with. Thank you all so much for your help.
