					                  The limitations that come with a heritage-listed building




 Although Australia is a relatively young country, we still have a fair few 'heritage-listed' properties
scattered around the place. If you live or work in a heritage building, or are planning on buying or
leasing one, it's important to know the restrictions you may have to deal with. As Sydney
developers, we can explain the kind of power the authorities have when it comes to assessing
heritage-listed buildings. We'll then talk you through the limitations as well as the extent of
freedom that people have when renovating these properties.What is a heritage-listed building?
A heritage-listed building is one that is historically or culturally significant in some way. A
government panel has decided that it's worth preserving the character, architecture, or the
landscape of the property. Basically, it's a building that has been deemed special enough to
protect from demolition or change. Once a property has been heritage-listed, there are rules that
say it must be kept in its original state. Heritage status can be a positive thing, as you're inhabiting
or working in a part of history. On the other hand, it can be very frustrating when it comes to
renovating such properties.Who controls heritage real estate?
In Australia, there are three levels of authority that control heritage properties. These are the
federal, state, and local governments. The 'levels' correspond with how important the property is.
For instance, the federal government manages properties that are of Australia-wide significance,
while the local councils do not. These governments set out the restrictions on each type of
heritage property. The restrictions differ depending on how significant the property is, and what
part of it needs to be preserved. The authorities also assess, approve, and reject any proposed
changes to the properties.What are the restrictions?
It's a common misconception that you can't do anything to a heritage-listed building. This isn't true.
There are limitations of course, but really, these apply to all buildings. For example, council and
zoning are always an issue for Sydney commercial builders. With heritage properties, the building
has to keep the same look and feel. However, functionality is a different story. If the buildings are
going to be used, it's only fair that they are practical, so there is some leeway in that
regard.Renovations
There is a little bit of flexibility when it comes to renovating these properties. The properties must
be safe and useable. Some of the older houses may need new kitchens, better bathrooms, new
electrical outlets, and more modern plumbing. Similarly, commercial buildings may also need fire
alarms and stairs. The first thing to do is find out what the property was heritage listed for, and
then that will help you understand the limitations. For example, if it was for the architecture, then
you will have some freedom in updating the interior design. If it was for the outdoor landscape, you
are just obligated to maintain that. Extensions
In most cases, extensions are allowed, but they must match the existing building. They must be
built in the same style, whether that be Federation, Victorian, or so on. If you are looking to add on
to a heritage-listed property, just check in with your council first and find out if there are any styles
you'll need to imitate. Hopefully this post has helped you gain a better understanding of both the
power and freedom involved with heritage-listed buildings. In addition, we hope it has also
debunked some of the myths about these historical properties.
