Overseas Procedures


Equip yourself with knowledge and information. Knowing the type of real estate you would like to purchase is just as important as understanding how the buying process works in the country you are investing in. Seek advice from an agent or professional to know more about a country’s purchase regulations and legalities.

ResRei Sardinia will use modern tools, appeal to its extensive network, and pre-visit the properties in Sardinia that best match your criteria. They will assist you throughout the entire buying process, i.e. from the pre-selection of properties to the establishment of the notarial act. You may request assistance from the ResRei Sardinia team during and/or after the deal, for example to find a notary, obtain renovation or maintenance quotes, etc.


What, how and when to pay for your property is a big part of the buying process. Consider your budget to determine your potential investment. Costs may include legal fees, moving fees, insurance, etc. Professional advice will help you to be fully prepared for this step so you can avoid unwanted surprises later on.


The best way to get a feel for the area and the state of the property you are buying is by visiting it. Also, you will be able to meet the seller face to face and ask questions in person. Although this step is not necessary, it could be the biggest factor in your decision-making.

During your stay in Sardinia, ResRei Sardinia will make all necessary arrangements for you to visit the pre-selected properties. A discovery tour will be scheduled to help you confirm your choice and achieve your objective – find the perfect investment.

Moving in

Once you have purchased your property and signed all legal documents, the next step is to move in. How will you furnish your new property? Do you plan on buying furniture or shipping it via sea or air freight? Also, look into purchasing insurance for your property and belongings.

Renting your property

Renting your property is a great way to generate income. Consider hiring a property management company for maintenance and repairs of your property while you are away. Promote and advertise your property on websites and social media to attract customers.

ResRei is a real estate consulting agency that provides assistance with the renting of properties.

With pleasure I will add new terms to my glossary with your suggestions or your questions.

Agent's fees

These are normally charged at 3% or more to the buyer and 3% to the seller.

Codice Fiscale

Codice fiscale or “tax registration number” is essential to have a to purchase real estate in Italy. This number allows public administrations to identify citizens, Italians or foreigners. It has sixteen (16) digits and is delivered by “Agenzia delle Entrate”.


his document is the most important document of the real estate purchasing process in Italy, as it provides a detailed identification of the property which is the subject matter of the contract, and binds the parties to complete the transaction by a given date. This is a highly technical document. At this stage, a deposit equivalent to 20-30% of the purchase price shall be paid to the seller. These moneys are normally paid by the purchaser as earnest.


A notary represents the public authority. His role is to draw up all legal documents pertaining to the purchase of a property: for example carry out legal searches to verify the identities of both parties, make sure the property is correctly registered at the cadaster before sale, collect purchase taxes on behalf to Italian Government and recover notary fees before the signing of the Rogito, update Land Registry entries (at Conservatoria dei Registri Immobiliari) after completion.

Professional rates were repealed by the regulations on liberalization (decreto-legge 24 gennaio 2012, n. Convertito nella legge 24 marzo 2012, n. 27). For this raison notary fees are no longer subject to scales defined by minimums and maximums. The client is entitled to request and obtain from the notary, a quote that duly details the complexity of the services to be provided, as justification for the fees’ potential amount. In any case, the amount featured on the quote is not final, since the case’s complexity will be verified only at the end of the legal process. The tax on services (IVA 22%) must be added to notary fees.


The “Rogito Notarile” is the final stage of deed of sale / purchase and takes place before a notary with both parties present. The notary ensures all the necessary documentation is complete and accurate. By signing this document, the buyer become the legal owner of the property.

Su Filindeu: The secret behind Italy’s rarest PASTA

on Nov 5, 2016 | 0 comments
Away from its famed cerulean seas, Sardinia’s craggy interior is a twisting maze of deep chasms and impenetrable massifs that shelter some of Europe’s most ancient traditions. Residents here still speak Sardo, the closest living form of Latin. Grandmothers gaze warily at outsiders from under embroidered veils. And, in a modest apartment in the town of Nuoro, a slight 62-year-old named Paola Abraini wakes up every day at 7 am to begin making su filindeu – the rarest pasta in the world.
