At the moment, legal advice is the main profile of our company.
Due to the increased interest in this service, we have started consulting clients all over Italy and, if necessary, provide consultations remotely.
Requests for advice as a kind of «defender of interests» from the outside, who is neutral in matters of purchase and gives an independent opinion on the transaction being made, additionally still checking and acting solely in the interests of the buyer, have become more frequent.
In addition, the purchase of any real estate often turns into a multi-faceted consultation on many related legal issues. Such as a will, different fiscal residence from residence, to whom it is better to purchase property, etc. Family law, tax law, public, immigration, constitutional, European, international — they are all closely intertwined in this field and are in constant interaction. There are no clear borders, especially when it comes to foreign citizens.
Therefore, there are always a lot of questions, both before and after the purchase of real estate.
Our Agency differs from others in its legal bias and serious approach to business.
We check the purchase offer BEFORE it is signed by the seller and ask the notary to check EVERYTHING before submitting the offer to the official form, that is, BEFORE it enters into force.
Before opening her Agency, the owner of the company graduated from the Italian University in Rome with a degree in international law and, with the exception of criminal law, all other rights were passed and studied. This was followed by many years of practice as an assistant lawyer.
