Buying a Home in Italy 🇮🇹 Part 3
Welcome back. In this chapter I shall explain the process from the buyers point of view when buy a property in Italy.
I hope this may offer potential buyers some understanding of whats to be expected and may help someone move towards owning their own dream home.
This is my own personal experience and I would suggest having highly recommended representation when looking to buy.
In the last chapter you will remember I ended with my offer being accepted. Moving forward, we head towards the first step the offer letter, this outlines things such as price of the property in question / price broken down into deposit and final balance, address of property, details of seller / buyer
Details of the notary dealing with the sale.
A note on Notary’s 🙂
A notary, or notaio, in Italy is a public officer, appointed by the state and whose role is to authenticate and attest acts. He/she works within the law, with families and businesses to create appropriate legal solutions that satisfy both the law and the aims of both parties, thus discouraging any future litigation.
