Telling us about your property
If you have a property to sell, please initially send a brief description, some interior and exterior photos or preferably a link, and location, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please only send small photos initially or if the photos you are sending are large please send via a Dropbox link or via WeTransfer.
We cannot guarantee to take on all properties, only those that we feel will appeal to our demanding clients, and those which are in an area we cover.
– If you are selling you will need to have an EPC (energy performance certificate). We can arrange this for you in some areas if required.
– If you have owned your property in Italy for less than 5 years, you will have to pay capital gains tax (20%) on any gains. You can offset gains against building work and sale/purchase fees and taxes.
– many properties need plans or documentation updating or planning issues regulated. We will advise you if this is the case. The procedures necessary will need to be instructed by you, and the fees paid accordingly to the appropriate professionals and are not included in the agency selling fee.
If we can’t take your property on directly, perhaps because it’s in an area we don’t cover, but we think it is the sort of property our clients are looking for, we may offer you a private seller advertisement. Please ask for details.
