Are you looking for an Italian mortgage to help you buy? read our mortgages guide
I'd like to make an offer, I have a property in mind
Before making the offer, we can advise you on a number of important issues:
The offer should be in writing before it will be taken seriously by an Italian seller or their agent;
The Proposta is the document containing your offer, and it could contain a legal commitment of a certain deposit required
Some agents could supply an English proposta (Offer for the vendor) or preliminare (contract), but many do not. Contact us for help.
I made an offer but the process seems stuck and there seems to be a problem
Did you know that when buying in Italy sellers are not compelled to have all property documents in order until after they have your commitment to buy? (as long as they get things in order before closing/settlement day)
The average purchase can take around 9 months until the Rogito takes place.. so don’t be surprised if things are slower than you expect
I'm not getting any response or finding trouble communicating with all parties
Effective communication is simply the most important aspect when completing a property purchase. You simply must know what you are getting into.
In many regions of Italy (especially smaller regions) you will find only Italian language and not much English being spoken. English written by Italian property agents and consultants may also be unclear or copied from Google translate
Have you thought of your strategy to overcome potential communication problems ? Do you need help in this area?
Italy is a great place to retire, so many people we know, agree!
