Buying property in Italy – a snapshot

06 Oct Buying property in Italy – a snapshot

Buying your home or vacation property in Italy can seem a daunting process. There are several steps and potential pitfalls along the way.

Italy will test you along the way. At some stage she will ask you, ‘Are you serious about buying property here?’ It’s not easy to summarise the process quickly or succinctly, and in a way every purchase is different.

However in this flowchart below we attempt to summarise the process for you in one visual map. It may be useful for those looking for a helicopter view .. and for you engineers out there.

If you look closely there’s 3 distinct elements: the potential mortgage consideration; the property survey and geometra stage .. and the 3 legal contracts before completion.
