Property renovation in Italy

Golden farmhouses covered by rambling ivy, ancient manors with glorious views and characterful homes in medieval villages. Most of the charming Italian properties that appeal to the tastes of foreign buyers, are “vintage” period buildings. Run-down, or at very least outdated as regards facilities and overall comfort, these charming dwellings need to be renovated and restored. 

Restoring an old house to its original glory, and adding one’s personal touch to the furnishing and decor, is a wonderfully exciting enterprise!

But renovating a time-worn property, and handling all the legal issues implied, is a challenging endeavor for a foreigner unfamiliar with local ruling and, possibly, not very fluent in the language.

As elsewhere, a proprietor will have to find dependable contractors, builders, architects, engineers etc., comply with standing policies, and last (but definitely not least!) be sure of the costs implied. Moreover, Italian law is very strict on the observance of building legislation: proprietors who carry out renovations without the required permits are subject to criminal prosecution.
