Köpeprocessen Steg för Steg (Compravendità).

1. BUD PÅ FASTIGHETEN(Proposta d’Acquisto)

Första steget när du hittat ditt hus är att lägga ett bud på fastigheten. Detta lämnas skriftligen till säljaren tillsammans med en mindre handpenning, vanligen en check utställd på säljaren. Checken deponeras hos mäklaren.

Mäklaren kommer att fylla i ett budformulär, när du är närvarande, som innehåller alla dina ev.villkor för köpet.

Om säljaren accepterar ditt bud och dina villkor får du en skriftlig bekräftelse på detta. Båda parter är då bundna att genomföra affären enligt ditt ‘Proposta d’Acquisto.' Din check överlämnas då till säljaren och blir din handpenning på fastigheten.

Om säljaren inte accepterar ditt bud kommer mäklaren att återlämna din check och du är fri att ‘vandra vidare’ eller att lägga ett nytt bud enligt ovanstående procedur.


  • Om du drar dig ur affären när ditt bud accepterats kommer du att förlora din handpenning. Om säljaren drar sig ur återfår du handpenningen samt motsvarande summa i böter från säljaren.
  • När du lägger ett bud måste du ange när du vill skriva under det preliminära- och slutgiltiga köpekontraktet. Dessa datum ses som deadlines men kontrakten kan skrivas under tidigare vid överenskommelse med säljaren.
  • Det är inte obligatoriskt att betala handpenning när du lägger ditt bud. Detta kan diskuteras med säljaren och så även betalningsmetoden.


Compromesso är ett avtal där parterna enas om att ingå ett slutgiltigt köpekontrakt (notarial deed) och där man enas om köpet/försäljningens alla villkor.

Detta avtal innehåller båda parters personuppgifter, fullständiga fastighetsuppgifter, pris och betalningsmetod, bekräftelse på att fastigheten inte är belånad samt datum när båda parter enats om att skriva under det slutgiltiga kontraktet.

Ytterligare en delbetalning görs till säljaren, vanligen ca 20% av det totala försäljningspriset (inkl tidigare betald handpenning).


  • I detta skede behöver du ett italienskt skattenummer (codice fiscale) som kan fås genom alla italienska skattekontor och vid Italienska Ambassaden i ditt hemland.
  • Mäklaravgiften betalas när Compromesso skrivits under av båda parter. Avgiften uppgår till ca 3% av köpeskillingen + VAT.
  • En god idé är att öppna ett italienskt bankkonto i detta skede, som förberedelse inför det slutgiltiga kontraktskrivandet.

3. NOTARIATSHANDLING (Rogito Notarile)

Notariatshandlingen är det slutgiltiga köpekontraktet och detta skrivs under av köpare och säljare i Notarius Publicus (notaio) närvaro.

Innan kontraktet skrivs under kotrollerar Notarius Publicus alla relevanta dokument och register. Kontraktet samanställs och du registreras som fastighetsägare.

Du betalar resterande summa för fastigheten, avgiften för Notarius Publicus samt gällande skatter.


Avgiften varierar men är vanligen ca 1,5% - 2,0% (inkl VAT) av köpeskillingen. Offert kan begäras.


Skatter som betalas vid fastighetsköp:

Seller  Tax  Primary Residence  Secondary Residence 
Purchase from
a private seller
Registration Tax  2% of cadastral value * 9% of cadastral value 
Local Tax  €50   €50

10% of purchase 
price **
Registration Tax  €200   €200  
Local Tax  €200  €200
Stamp Duty  €200 €200


* there is a minimum fee of €1,000 when paying the 2% tax on a primary residence. If the property is classed as a 'luxury home', the tax is 9%, not 2%.
** if the property is classed a 'luxury home', the tax is 20%, not 10%.


Du kan som köpare välja Notarius Publicus för genomförande av köpet. Notarien är dock opartisk och kan inte företräda den ena parten utan arbetar för båda parters säkerhet vi köpet/försälningen.


  • Skatterna baseras på husets taxeringsvärde (valore catastale), som oftast är betydligt lägre än försälningssumman.
  • Om du som köpare inte förstår italienska måste dokumenten översättas till svenska alt.engelska.
  • Du kan även ge en betrodd person fullmakt (Procura) för att skriva under i ditt ställe. 

Att köpa hus i Italien kan verka komplicerat och byråkratiskt, men oftast löper köpeprocessen relativt snabbt och utan komplikationer.  Vi hjälper dig under varje steg på vägen och förbereder dig för nästa.

We are now the happy owners of a beautiful house in Abruzzo.

We came to Abruzzo for the first time, knowing that we love Italy and having talked to Tracey once, we soon realized that she understood our brief better than we perhaps did ourselves.

We not only enjoyed her professional service, both during the search and all the following admin work, but also the friendly manner in which it was delivered.

We would have no reservations in recommending Abruzzo Reality to anyone that would like to buy a property in Abruzzo.

Tracey of 'Abruzzoreality' is quite simply a miracle worker! Let us explain.

Having had a holiday home out in the countryside near Penne for ten years, we decided that it was now time for us to 'downshift' and move to a smaller, more easily managed house in town. Tracey had superbly managed the country house for us, arranging ongoing maintenance for the house and gardens, as well as successfully organising holiday lets for the weeks when we were not 'in residence'. Tracey is a highly respected professional; her knowledge and understanding of the vagaries of the property market in Abruzzo is second to none. Knowing her to be honest; always acting with integrity and with our best interests at heart, we were keen to involve her in our plans to relocate in Abruzzo, from the outset.

Tracey designed the advertisement for the sale of our property; posted it on her Abruzzoreality website and was successful in attracting a number of potential buyers. A sale and date for the exchange of contracts was agreed within weeks, meaning we had to quickly find a town house which met our needs. Tracey arranged for us to look at suitable properties in our preferred towns of Penne and Loreto Aprutino. Tracey chose well and we fell in love with a beautiful compact house in the 'Centro Storico' in Loreto. We made an offer which was accepted and through Tracey's hard work, were able to complete the purchase to coincide with the sale of our country property. Tracey had managed to successfully ensure our move was stress-free, seamless and relatively quick to conclude.

We will of course continue to use Tracey's management services for our new holiday home in Loreto and as always, will never hesitate to recommend 'Abruzzoreality' to anyone and everyone! We have been very lucky in getting to know Tracey, who for a whole variety of reasons, has made our time in Abruzzo trouble free and hugely enjoyable. Long may she continue to do so!

We used Abbruzzo Reality for the sale of our house. Their service was very good and they were able to find a good number of people to look at the house. Once a buyer was found, all of the necessary documentation, notary appointments, handover of utilities were taken care of. I wouldn't  hesitate in recommending this company’s services.

While searching for our dream house in Italy, we “shortlisted” a long list of about 30 houses in various parts of Abruzzo. More than half of the houses were from Abruzzo Reality, as Tracey was one of the few real estate agents that responded to us, and promptly too. We met different real estate agents during our house-hunting trip. Tracey and Vincenzo stood out as they patiently listened to our requirements (and we were rather fussy about what we wanted!) and brought us to see the different houses. We read about the Daunting process of buying a house in Italy and different websites tell you different things. We were glad we could leave everything to Tracey and Vincenzo! They made the whole process so much easier as we had to go back to work and could not travel to Italy as often as we would have liked. After signing for our dream house, Tracey and Manolo (the do-it-all handyman) helped us with everything from cleaning the house, dealing with the utility company, to getting the house painted. We really appreciate their help!

We were already looking a while for a suitable house for us in Abruzzo. Abruzzo Reality helped us very well on the search for this suitable house. We visited several houses. but when we saw our house, we knew immediately knew that this was the one. The house offers plenty of oportunities. Tracey helped us perfectly through the buying process.
A few months later we were the proud new owners! Tracey has also helped us with the paperwork concerning the purchase. Nothing was too much and we also found it important that the documents were translated in English. For a foreigner it’s not so easy , especially because ‘notary language’ is not the most understandable one.
Besides her professionalism, Tracey gave us a trust worthy feeling. She and Vincenzo are a good, reliable team. They made it a lot easier for us with their professional way of working and their knowledge.
Meanwhile, we are several months away and we are enjoying our life in Abruzzo. A splendid region that has so much to offer! Thanks!

Tracey made buying a property in Abruzzo a quicker and easier process than buying property in the UK. We viewed in July and moved in November. She arranged appropriate viewings and was prepared to drive us to several properties with return visits when required. We stopped occasionally for coffee and pizza and a chat about the steps necessary, to make sure everything was done legally and ensure our peace of mind. Tracey is an invaluable link between non- Italian speakers and the authorities involved in buying here. She arranged Codice Fiscale's, bank accounts, money transfers, notaio's, geometra's etc and also arranged work we wanted done at the house before we moved in. She even personally cleaned the house before we moved in and bought us the essentials of at least wine to see us through the first night after a long drive from North Wales. Most communications were via email, always prompt, truthful and courteous. After we had moved in and during that very unsure period she was available by phone or email to help and support us when dealing with utility companies, Sky TV and practically anything we asked of her. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend using the friendly and professional services of Abruzzo Reality.

We cannot speak highly enough of our experience when dealing with Tracey Nicholas of Abruzzo Reality.  She made the whole selling process so simple and straightforward, and this was dealing with two customers who didn’t speak a word of Italian!  She answered every email promptly, was honest and fair and we had total faith in her from the beginning, and our trust was rewarded.  The viewing of our property, to the completion with the notary, all took place in under a month, thanks to her organisation.  We were kept fully informed at every stage, from receiving initial deposits to advising when to book our flights.  What we expected to be a complicated and nerve wracking experience actually turned out to be very enjoyable, thanks to her.  We recommended her to friends of ours, and they had exactly the same experience as us, and even said she did more than was expected to help them after their sale was completed, assisting them with the bank and transfers.  We would be happy to act as referees for anyone thinking of buying or selling with Tracey, we are totally confident you would be as pleased as we were if you used her as your agent.

After living 8 years in Abruzzo, Italy, we felt it was time for another change in our lives and we put our house on the market. Within a year we sold it through Tracey and her colleague Vincenzo. We are very pleased with the way the sales process has gone. Tracey and Vincenzo offered help and gave advise wherever needed.
Currently, we have to make the latest changes by name at a view Italian utility companies and we are pleased to have the help of Tracey for realizing that. So we are very satisfied with the work of Tracey and Vincenzo. Thank you both!

For some time we were looking for a nice place to call our own in Italy, where we could have a relaxing time in between the rush of daily life, but could also rent during the high season. Looking over countless internet pages and visiting real estate sites we came across the site of "abruzzoreality.com". We couldn't have been more lucky.

From the start we had all the help that a 'stranger in paradise' could wish.

Together with Tracey we browsed the practically the whole of north Abruzzo for something suitable that had to be not only comfortable but also had to be fitting within our budget.

Because we were in the Netherlands, she visited several properties for us and came up with an extreme good property in Mosciano Sant'Angelo at the end of May. From that moment everything went in a current. Tracey and colleagues did literally everything for us. They took care of all the paperwork and she was our tower of strength during this hectic period. In only a few weeks we had to go to Italy to get everything straightened out and a few weeks later we could sign the contract. I'm sure that with our lack of knowledge about the Italian language and bureaucracy, we would have never done it in such a short period with such a fantastic result.

Our sincere compliments to Tracey for all her effort in helping us to obtain our apartment. Abruzzo Reality really put people before quick profits.

Thank you guys!

We cannot thank Tracey and Vincenzo enough for all the fabulous help and support they have given us throughout the process of finding a new home in Abruzzo, Italy. Their honesty, openness and friendly professionalism was everything we needed to feel confident at what was a daunting time. I would highly recommend both Tracey and Vincenzo to anyone looking to buy or sell in Abruzzo. True Gems that deserve every success. THANK YOU.

From the word go we were impressed by Tracey's professionalism. She focused on exactly the type of property we wanted, not what she had to sell. Tracey spent a lot of time with us and offered much practical advice and we secured a perfect house meeting all our requirements. In addition, Tracey provided all the necessary information on Italian property law and much else besides about local issues. The whole process moved very smoothly to completion with Tracey and her colleagues always there to clarify any issues. A first class operation.

When we fell in love with our little house in the Abruzzen, Italy, we were extremely lucky to have the help and support of Tracey.  She always responds quickly to all our emails and is tireless when it comes to answering all our questions. We certainly couldn’t have done it without her.

We were extremely happy with the professional service provided by Tracey when selling our house in Abruzzo. Tracey was very efficient, responsive and provided a high quality and reliable service, as well as being a sincere person.

Tracey always kept us well informed through every step of the selling process. It is worth noting that Tracey was also prepared to put in the extra work, even driving 2 hours each way, because through her experience she knew that our property would match her client's requirements. We are very pleased Tracey put in the time and effort to sell our property as she was then able to match it to the buyer's requirement the outcome being it was sold to the first family who viewed it. I would definitely recommend Tracey who is a professional breath of fresh air, compared to the indifference showed by some other agencies (especially when selling).

Tracey has made the selling of our Abruzzese property painless. She has coped with all the bureaucracy for us, and made a potentially very stressful time, into a positive experience. If only all house buying was that simple; much more certain and secure than in the UK. Many thanks.

Buying property in a foreign country can be intimidating without a trusted guide. Tracey is that person. We have worked with her since 2010. She helped us buy our first home in Abruzzo, and when it became to small, sold it for us and helped us buy a larger one. She also cares for our property and manages the necessary paperwork in our absence for very reasonable fees. She is high energy and clearly enjoys what she does, but what most impresses us is how she continually goes above and beyond what a normal estate agent would do to help with the many small things -- even those not directly property related. If you are looking to buy in Abruzzo, you can rely on Tracey to provide you honest service, good advice, and service long after the sale.

I want to share the great experience I had with my agent Tracey. I’m a US resident and earlier this year I decided to make my dream of owning a home in Italy a reality. I was lucky to find Abruzzo Reality in my search.
Tracey was instrumental in refining my search and ultimate purchase in Abruzzo.
Having no idea how to purchase a property in Italy, she was able to help me through entire process. Even after the sale, Tracey helped me connect with locals to get the services I needed, from utilities to having work done.
The process couldn’t have have smoother and I highly recommend Tracey.

We had a very large and unusual property and Tracey and colleagues did a great job selling it, they managed to find a buyer who loves our house and village. They were helpful and accommodating from the beginning, through to the final act.

"We cannot sing the praises of Tracey sufficiently highly. She has taken all of the worry out of the house purchasing process in Italy. She has been trustworthy, thorough and reliable throughout. Tracey is a gentle, intuitive translator, active project manager and industrious agent. We have made significant savings by entrusting the whole process to Tracey. Without having the confidence to make this leap of faith we could never have operated so effectively, or economically from so great a distance.

The inevitable unfamiliarity with the Italian property house buying market proved potentially daunting. Informed advice is crucial and is provided in abundance."

We can't say enough good things about Tracey and Vincenzo. The welcoming guidance they provided during our first day-long house search in several towns was as helpful and generous as their time and "insider insights." We've had good experiences with real estate professionals in our moves, but have never seen this level of customer service and expertise.

From the moment we began working with Tracey, we knew we had found someone extraordinary that would make our house-buying experience as smooth as it possibly could be, considering we were interested in buying a house on a different continent, in a country where we didn’t speak the language. Her warm personality and amazing work ethic, when combined with her knowledge of the Abruzzo region, make her simply the perfect realtor to work with when buying a home there. We had countless questions for her throughout the process, for which she provided answers via e-mail or telephone almost immediately, regardless of time zone differences. There were also many challenges with the bank that provided our home loan that Tracey resolved through perseverance and 100% dedication to our best interests. When we met her in person, our initial impression was solidly reinforced; we instantly felt at ease with her, as if she was part of our new family abroad. We honestly don’t know if we could have succeeded in buying our dream home in Italy without her, and continue to depend on her and trust her fully with other business opportunities to this day. We couldn’t be more pleased with her work. We also cannot say GRAZIE MILLE enough to our dear friend Tracey Nicholas for making all of it possible, and for making it a fantastic experience!!
