Real Estate and Residential Property

Famous for its culture, beautiful cities, cuisine and overall quality of life, recent years have seen an increasing number of international buyers and investors interested in buying real estate, of various types in Italy, from the white sand beaches in Sardinia to the urban bustle of Milan.

At Giambrone, our Italian real estate lawyers bring insight, knowledge and expertise to every transaction, applying in-depth expertise to a wide spectrum of residential and commercial property transactions.

Property transactions in Italy are regulated by the provisions of the Italian Civil Code as well as administrative, environmental, and fiscal laws and regulations. Over the past few years, we have assisted many foreigners, mainly from the UK, Ireland, US and Scandinavia in buying a residential property in Italy as a holiday home or simply second home, an investment, or a place in which to spend their retirement years

As well as assisting our commercial clients such as major domestic and international developers, investors, real estate funds and asset managers on matters relating to purchase, management and disposal of commercial, residential, industrial, leisure and retail properties, and leasing of land in Italy.

  • Domestic/international tax and estate planning
  • Drafting, translation and legalisation of powers of attorney and corporate documents
  • Italian immigration, work permits, and licenses
  • Negotiation and drafting of commercial or residential leases

We can provide, not only the expertise to ensure that your property transaction is conducted as smoothly as possible but we can also deal with the surrounding issues that are associated with your purchase.  We have the ability to offer a  ‘one-stop-shop’ solution for all real estate-related legal matters.
