Are there any factors we should check out if intending to buy a converted house in St Johns Wood in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. St Johns Wood surveyors need to possess local knowledge of local issues and the connection may have with the building. The price of property is, more often than not, higher as a result of them resisting change. However a growing number have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - the huge increase in street clutter
