The Consiglio Nazionale del Notariato has published a useful online guide to help foreign nationals who want to buy a property in Italy. The guide entitled “Living and Doing Business in Italy” was created “to meet the needs of Italy’s new economic scenarios and to inform foreign citizens about operations that in Italy by law require the intervention of a notary, who is a public official of the Italian Republic”. “In the guide, foreign citizen  can find practical information on the documents and formalities needed to buy a home, take out a mortgage (in collaboration with ABI, the Italian Banking Association) and start a business in Italy”, said Italian notaries.
The guide has been translated in to several languages and the English version can be downloaded for free on the website www.notariato.it
