Renting out a property in Italy

Many visitors, fascinated by Italy’s art, architecture and kaleidoscopic natural environment, return once and again to enjoy the ambiance, delicious food and wonderful wines. Yes, foreign travelers often fall in love with the Italian lifestyle and getting to know the country better, many start thinking about buying property in a place they particularly like, or in a sought-after location.

Real estate is, in fact, one of Italy’s most marvelous attractions. This because there are hundreds of truly splendid properties for sale, and the diversity is dazzling. Seductive seafront cottages on the Riviera, mountainside chalets in the Dolomites, dazzling apartments in the heart of Florence and Rome, heavenly farmhouses among the vineyards, and frescoed town houses in Venice. 

The range of opportunities is so extensive it can sweep you off your feet, and the amazing bonus is that…if you buy it and can’t relocate, or if you plan to come over for only a few weeks every year, you can be extra sure to profit by renting it out!

Investing in property in Italy is a win-win venture, because a good property in an attractive location will always and forever be eligible for rent. 

Yet, a prospective foreign purchaser and future landlord should bear in mind that the Italian real estate market has its very own “ways” and proceedings, and that these are sometimes difficult to grasp and master if one is not 100% familiar with local customs, on one side, and with standing law and bureaucracy on the other. Moreover, a non-Italian national who lives abroad and is not perfectly fluent in Italian might experience objective drawbacks – for example in negotiations, closing of deals, drawing up of due diligence reports etc. – due to both the language barrier and the physical distance. 

Truth be told, Italian legislation and the red tape implied in property purchase and management don’t make things easier… even Italians have a hard time getting through the somewhat cryptic maze of requirements and duties one must comply with, and not being fluent in Italian can lead to misunderstandings, or, worst case scenario, to unsuccessful or unprofitable deals.

Well, if one is here to invest, what one needs is to know the investment is going to be worth one’s time and money. Views and Prosecco aside, what a foreign buyer, and prospective owner, wants is to make a good deal, finalize it properly before a notary, in compliance with the full legal procedure, find dependable tenants and draw up advantageous lease agreements.
