Roadmap for Buying a Property in Italy: Expert Buying Guidance by Gimbrere Legal

Are you someone who dreams of your own piece of paradise in Italy? Buying a home in this beautiful country can be an exciting step, but it is crucial to be well prepared. In this article, we explain the roadmap for buying a property in Italy and how Gimbrere Legal can assist you during this process.
Step 1: Research and Budgeting

Before beginning your adventure, thorough research is essential. Set a realistic budget, including not only the purchase price, but also costs such as transfer tax, notary and attorney fees, and any renovation costs.

Step 2: Search for the Perfect Home

Finding the ideal property in Italy can take time. Engage real estate agents, visit different regions and properties, and identify what best suits your lifestyle and needs. Gimbrere Legal works with several brokerage firms that we would be happy to put you in touch with should you wish.

Step 3: Preliminary Purchase Agreement

Once you have found your dream home, a preliminary sales contract is usually drawn up. This sets out the terms of the purchase, such as the price, payment terms and transfer date. It is important that you will not sign this document until it has been reviewed by an attorney. Unlike in the Netherlands, it is common in Italy for a buyer to be accompanied by a lawyer. By the way, the seller often does this as well.

Step 4: Technical and Legal Research

A thorough technical and legal examination of the property is essential. This includes checking ownership papers, permits and any restrictions on the property. Gimbrere Legal can assist you to ensure that everything is in order and that you do not encounter any surprises.

Step 5: Final Purchase Contract and Notarial Deed

Upon successful completion of the survey, the final contract of sale is drawn up. This contract is signed by both parties and is usually followed by the signing of the notarized deed. This is where ownership is officially transferred to you.

Step 6: Registration and Taxes

After signing the notarized deed, the property transaction must be registered with the local land registry. This is a crucial step in protecting your rights as an owner. Taxes such as transfer tax must also be paid.
