Great news for our UK clients, if you wish to buy a holiday home in Italy you will still be able to do so after Brexit. This will be on a ‘non-resident’ basis, if you are not spending more than 6 months a year in Italy (otherwise you would be resident in Italy and can apply for residency).For other nationalities, the reciprocate rule applies in that, very broadly, if Italians can buy in a country then that nationality can buy in Italy.And what about visiting and staying in Italy?You can visit on holiday as long as you please in-line with the Schengen rules ie no more than 3 months in any 6 months, and there are no restrictions on renting the property. Should you wish to stay more than 3 months in a 6-month spell, then a visa will be required. This is a change as this was not necessary before Brexit.And looking for a property during lockdown?Not a problem. We are here to help and just introduced our PROPERTY FINDER service. We know so many people cannot be physically here in Italy so we can help and after a full briefing, will look for the property of your dreams.And assistance for renovating properties for anyone not in Italy?We offer a full project management service if you are having any works done. We can visit the site and provide independent detailed reports of how the work is progressing. Plus, any technical reports can be organised to suit your requirements.
