Italian Property

Italian conveyancing and how it works

How to buy a property in Italy.

Background Image

All sales are required to be registered, which the Notary will undertake once the purchase is completed, usually within 30 days.

Modus Operandi

If you wish to instruct a solicitor to aid you in the purchase, we will work closely alongside him/her in order to acquire all documentation, assist in the sales procedure and communicate with you, the vendor and the solicitor at every step of the way. However, as a professional registered Real Estate company we are qualified to act for you and to undertake the Italian conveyancing. Collectively we have over 50 years of experience in Italian property sales. We pride ourselves on our ability and in our opinion offer the best service for international purchasers in Italy. We have acted for purchasers buying Italian property from other agents and are happy to discuss any purchase. For further information please contact us for our full services.
