Clare Best - Associate

Clare Best qualified as a Licensed Conveyancer in 2008 and works in our Commercial Property team.

Having joined Taylor Vinters in 2003 as a legal secretary, Clare then undertook the CLC course and qualified in 2008, dealing with developments and plot sales.  In 2015, she moved to Howes Percival heading up their Cambridge residential team, specialising in development site setup, plot sales and high-end residential transactions.  In March 2020, Clare moved to Ashtons Legal as an Associate to head up their Cambridge plot sales team, dealing with site acquisitions, set up, supervision of the plot sales team and high-end residential transactions.

Clare currently advises on residential development and high-value residential property.  Her role is split between acting for individual clients who are buying and selling their home or investment property and developer clients in acquiring their next development site and the preparation of the documents in order for the individual plot sales to be progressed.

Clare is a member of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers.

Clare is approachable and calm; providing clients with clear and practical advice. She has always had an interest in property and finds with development sites it’s rewarding to see them change from bare land to a fully developed site.

In her spare time, Clare enjoys camping and walking holidays in the Lake District, where, after an active day, she can relax and read. Additionally, she is in the process of renovating her home and also enjoys running.
