In any case, we have enough experience in real estate business to give some good tips to people who want to buy an house in Florence.

1) Be patient. Italy’s burocracy is complicated and very slow. Using the right procedure we can help you to do everything spending less time, but in any case expect to wait more time for having your house here than in USA, Russia, UK, Australia, Japan, or Canada.

2) Consider that in Italy you need a ‘Notaio’ for doing all the notary acts you need for buying your property in Florence. A ‘Notario’ is agovernment approved conveyancing lawyer and usually he is not able to translate documents in english (or other language). Tuscan Feeling can provide you a Notaio, skilled in international real estate business, and we can help you with assistance and translations.

3) Before buying an house, be sure to check that there aren’t outstanding mortgages or debts linked to the property, that could be passed on to the purchaser. Usually, Tuscan Feeling do that for you, for preventing any kind of problem.

4) Before buying a property in Italy you have to do a compromesso (pay a deposit) of between 10-20 per cent of the sale price. If the buyer then pulls out of the deal before the date of the specified sale proper, he loses his deposit; if the vendor pulls out, he has to pay the buyer the deposit times two. It could be tricky to do that for a non-italian, but of course we do that every single day of the year…

5) Deal with the banks. Of course, you have to do that for buying a property in Italy and you need to deal with your bank (in your country) and an italian bank. It is no easy, we understand, that’s why we usually help your clients in this complicated process.
