The English words have some overlap. My feeling is that "heritage"/{quH}
focuses more on the descendant receiving something passed down, while
"legacy"/{'ISyar} focuses more on the ancestor passing something down to
their descendants. So in your first example, with the house being passed
down from your father, I would say the house is {quHlIj} and {vavlI'
'ISyar}.
