First home subsidies – what to do before buying

Let’s start by saying that common sense is one of the most important qualities to use in this case as well: for this reason we suggest a brief guide to face the purchase of your first home in a serene way.

Find as much information as you can on the identified property:

go to the place and ask future possible neighbors for information about the seller;

check the cadastral situation of the property : the “online cadastral and mortgage services” section of the official website of the Revenue Agency is useful. Request a mortgage inspection , so that the situation of the property is clear to you regarding: transcripts (sale or real rights) – mortgage registrations (mortgages and the like) – annotations (following cancellations or foreclosures). The mortgage inspection can be requested from the provincial offices of the territory; the service is free in case of co-ownership. If the applicant is not the owner of the building for which he requests an inspection, he must pay the taxes established by law.

Stipulate a preliminary sale:

it is an “agreement between the parties” with which the seller undertakes to transfer the property to the buyer following a subsequent deed of sale. This type of contract MUST be drawn up in writing;

register the preliminary sale agreement with the Revenue Agency, WITHIN 20 days of signing the same. COST: €200.00 registration tax + €16.00 stamp duty;

If the preliminary sale provides for a confirmatory deposit, the taxes go up: registration tax equal to 0.5% of the deposit or 3% of the down payment.
