Tax & Legal Sardinia

Buyers should set aside around 15% of the purchase price to cover costs.

Stamp duty/land registration tax fro non-residents (ie second home owners) varies from 10% of the declared price for urban property up to 17% for rural property. Most homes are considered urban.

Residents or those intending to make a Permanent move will pay 4% stamp duty

Vat on new properties ranges from 10 to 20% depending on whether the property is considered a ‘luxury home’. This is usually included in the price, (new law passed states that you pay on the basic of sqm)

Reduced rates of 4% VAT are available for those who build their own property

Estate agents fees are usually between 3 and 5%, notary fees average around 3% and legal costs tend to amount to around 2% of the purchase price

Local taxes (ICI) of between 0.4 and 0.7% also apply to anyone owning a home in Italy.

Buying property in Italy is straight forward but pretty time consuming

First buyer must obtain a tax identification number (codice fiscale) from the Italian authorities

There are then three main buying stages, first the buyer makes the offer which commits them to buying the property at the given price. If the seller accepts a deposit (usually 10%) is paid

Both parties then sign a legally binding proposal (compromesso di vendita). This outlines the details of the transaction, including the scheduled completion date.

Should the seller withdraw, they must pay the buyer double the value if the deposit. If the buyer pulls out they lose the deposit.

On completion, both parties sign the final contract (rogito) in the presence of a notary, who then issues the deeds and informs the land registry to transfer ownership. The remainder of the balance, plus all taxes, must then be paid at this point.

Other Fees & Running Cost

Annual Tax – 0.4% – The Imposta Comunale sugli Immobili is an annual council tax calculated on the value of the property based on the value stated in the building registry.

Annual Rubbish tax – Approximately 250€/year

Utilities – electricity, water, gas, telephone (if required) – Slightly less expensive than the UK

Community Charges – Upkeep of communal areas (swimming pools, tennis courts, garden lighting, maintenance etc). These charges are decided by the community of owners, in which you have a vote. We estimate these tend to be around 500€/year

Sardinia top holiday and investment destination

The island of Sardinia is the second largest in the Mediterranean Sea; it is located to the west of Italy and just below the French island of Corsica.
Sardinia has been described by many visitors as the ‘jewel of the Mediterranean’, with a perfect Mediterranean climate, stunning scenery and mountainous backdrops.

For many years Italians have enjoyed their holidays in Sardinia, enjoying the beautiful crystal clear blue waters and long sandy beaches the island is famous for. Today with the arrival of cheap flights provided by Ryanair and EasyJet to Cagliari which is the capital city of Sardinia, many British people can now enjoy their summer holidays in Sardinia too.
Property prices in Sardinia are very reasonable with 1 bed apartments starting at around 95,000 euros and a quality 3 bedroom detached home prices starting from around 370,000 euros.
Being Italian the same privileges of EU membership can be enjoyed in Sardinia, therefore the property buying process is relatively straight forward. If you’re a resident of another EU member state you should easily be able to get residence in Sardinia.
Having experienced the beauty and heartbeat of Sardinia has been an ensuring factor of many returning repeatedly for more.
