What you need to know when buying a real estate in Italy?

Buying a property in Italy is more complex than to buy it in United Kingdom or in USA or other places of the world. The act of purchasing involves a series of formalities for which it is advisable to be assisted and advised by qualified professionals.
With the signing of the notarial purchase contract (the Notary Deed), the transfer of the ownership of the property takes place immediately, simultaneously with the payment of the agreed price. It means that potential existence of shortfalls and discrepancies affecting the property must be carefully checked in all their aspects (compliance with urban planning regulations, technical documentation, defects, discrepancies, previous title transfer, etc.) before signing the final contract.

 

Purchase proposal, preliminary contract, deposit/down payment

In Italy, the first step of the process to purchase a real estate starts with a purchase proposal through a real estate agency, confirmed by a deposit., which is binding on the buyer. Once an agreement on the final price has been reached, the parties, buyer and seller, undersign a preliminary contract, where most of the contractual clauses are outlined (identification of the property for sale, agreed price, deadline for the final contract, down payments, other) and a down payment is made. Such preliminary contract may be binding and irrevocable for both parties, or non-binding but with penalties in the event of withdrawal of one party. It depends on the agreed terms of such a preliminary contract.
