Why should I get a heritage certificate?
A heritage certificate is a formal document that will tell you if a place has any heritage encumbrances relating to the Heritage Act against it.
This includes if:
- It is included on Victorian Heritage Register
- It is included on the Victorian Heritage Inventory
- A nomination has been made for the place and the status of that nomination
- An exclusion application has been made for the place and the status of that application
- It is in a World Heritage Environs Area
- There are any enforcement actions currently being taken at the place
- The certificate is valid for the day it is issued.
A Heritage Victoria certificate won’t tell you if a place is included in a Heritage Overlay, this information can be found by contacting your local council, checking via VicPlan or entering an address to check the heritage status of a property.
Applying for a heritage certificate
Heritage certificates can be ordered through Landata.
- You will need to register or use an account with Landata and have a credit or debit card to pay.
- Use the address of the property or the title details to search for the property you wish to request a certificate for.
A heritage certificate currently costs $59.60.
How long does it take?
You will receive your certificate within 7 business days.
