Italy Foreign Ownership Info
Italy doesn’t have many restrictions of foreign ownership but the country does have a lot of red tape when it comes to buying property. Make sure to use a bilingual lawyer if you don’t speak Italian. Lawyers generally charge 4-6% of the purchase price, but they are very necessary in navigating the real estate laws of Italy. Closing costs in Italy can reach as high as 20%. The lawyer should ensure that the private island has no debt against it. In Italy, debt remains attached to a property, not a person, even after sale. A lawyer will also check the title, local planning restrictions and ensure the vendor has the right to sell.   - Read Less
