Britain has many beautiful historical buildings and to protect this heritage many of these buildings will be listed. When buying a listed property it is important that you are aware of the implications.
There are three categories of listed building:
Owning a listed property comes with responsibilities. The property may be more costly to upkeep and you may need to deal with particular trade's people with a certain set of skills. However, contrary to popular belief you may be able to make changes to the building in the form of alterations or extensions, although listed building consent must be sought and agreed before any changes are implemented.
