These areas are considered to have special architectural or historical importance, which must be preserved or enhanced. Stricter planning rules apply in a conservation area, affecting everything from tree preservation to replacement windows.

Did you know?

One of the best-known Welsh sites linked to King Arthur is a Neolithic tomb dating back to 2500BC at Reynoldston. Legend has it that Arthur found a pebble in his shoe while walking in Carmarthenshire, which he threw across the estuary. It had grown into a massive stone by the time it landed on Cefn Bryn common.

The Gower Peninsula was named the UK's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956.

No Completion No Fee is our promise that in the unfortunate event that your property transaction falls-through you will not be liable for any of the conveyancer’s fixed legal fees for the work completed.

To secure this benefit a fee, already included in your quote, is taken upon on deciding to go ahead with your transaction.

Should your transaction fall through, for whatever reason, we can hold this amount on account for your next transaction or provide a refund.

Your Fixed Legal Fee** quote from Homeward Legal ensures that you pay no more than we have quoted you for and is based on the information you’ve provided to us being true and accurate.

There are specific circumstances on a minority of transactions that may require additional charges that could not be foreseen at the outset.

A list of those charges and explanations can be found here with details of the potential cost. These will only be charged following discussion with your conveyancer with a clear explanation of what they are for.
