“CAREFREE- HOME” solution means having a single point of contact who will accompany you from choosing the property to be purchased in Tuscany right through to the restructuring project, from execution of the work to choosing the materials and from technical advice to property management.
There are no costs. Both the selection of and visits to the properties are free of charge.
YES, absolutely! Technicians and workers (engineers, surveyors, architects, electricians, heating technicians, plumbers, carpenters, painters and decorators, plasterers, builders, tilers…, etc..) are all part of our team.
The houses that we propose are based on your needs and are only selected according to your budget. We will only offer properties in Tuscany that are within your budget, including renovation and building interventions.
Property management is the service that we offer once the work is completed. The tasks of a property manager aim to optimize the management of the building through: 1. Monitoring the working function of all the systems. 2. Constant contact with the property users for each timely intervention. 3. Checking reported problems and faults. 4. Coordination of all the workers who carry out specific tasks within your Tuscan property (eg. Housekeeper, gardener etc.). 5. Planning of any proposed interventions to the owners with analysis and costs. 6. Payment of utilities, taxes and workers.
With a normal deal the technical times are quite fast, approximately a couple of months. It is obvious that both the needs of the seller and the purchaser must be taken into account when talking about timeframes.
Using a lawyer when buying in Tuscany is not required, but In the more complicated cases, it is definitely advisable. Most Italians do not use a lawyer when buying their home in Italy. The property ownership transfer is carried out by a notary, an impartial authority, who checks the main ownership features and burdens. However, foreigners often use solicitors, as an additional precaution to ensure everything runs smoothly. An internation lawyer will suggest and advice you to by a property in Italy. If you have decided to buy a holiday home or a permanent place to live, you may be feeling intimidated by the administrative, bureaucratic and legal side of the foreign property market. A legal advice knows the laws and he knows how best to help you to achieve a positive outcome for your case: the language and cultural barriers often make it necessary to seek professional legal advice when buying and selling abroad. But please not, IT IS NOT REQUIRED BY LAW.
No, but we cooperet with an English speaking lawyer who is licensed to practice and is experienced in property sales.
The property transfer consists of signature of 2-3 contracts, and it is based on Italian law.
- A purchase proposal (reservation contract), not necessary, but it ensures that the selected property in Casentino and Arezzo is taken off the market for a small deposit.
- A preliminary contract (preliminare di compravendita“ or “compromesso“ ), this contract sets out all the key points of the future sale and purchase (the contractors, the property description, the date of the property ownership transfer, purchase price and payment conditions). This contract could, but does not need to, be signed in front of a notary.
- Final deed („rogito“), signed in front of a notary, which constitutes the final act of property ownership transfer.
This contract could, but does not need to, be signed in front of a public notary. Often our clients choose to do the preliminary contract in our real estate agency.
Yes. This is necessary to pay the property tax, as well as for the utility bills which are usually paid through a direct debit to an Italian bank account. To open a bank account, it is necessary to have an Italian fiscal number. We can help you to obtain one, as well as open a bank account.
