Our aim is to help you find your
perfect house in Italy and to minimise the risks associated with
buying Italian property.
The unfamiliarity of the Italian legal
system and the bureaucracy involved in buying a home in Italy can
make the process appear nerve wracking and complicated.
The biggest difference from the United
Kingdom is that Italians do not use legal advisers to carry out
property searches and draw up the contract. In Italy these tasks
are divided between the estate agent and the notary.
That is not to say that you cannot
instruct a local solicitor to represent your interests if you feel
more comfortable doing so. Vista Lago Homes can help advise you
along the way. MORE
If you cannot see an Italian property
on our website that meets your specific requirements then we will
undertake a bespoke Italian property finder service on your behalf.
Our specialist search service starts by understanding your needs so
that you avoid fruitless trips and wasted time.
We work with our extensive network of
trusted local Italian Property Agents to compile a portfolio of
Italian properties which meet your specific requirements. Many such
properties may not be on the Internet or in the public domain.
Our tailored Italian property finder
service is professional, attentive and discrete. What's more, it
won't cost you anymore than if you went to the Italian Property
Agents direct! MORE
"How incredibly lucky were we to
discover Vista Lago Homes, and Sue Mitchell in particular. Without
her the purchase of our apartment would have been very stressful,
but she helped us negotiate with the Italian estate agent and
guided us through the many aspects of Italian Laws and the various
formalities required, making the transition from the Vendor to
ourselves a much easier journey.
She was available to us 24/7 and was always so professional in
the way she performed, nothing was too much trouble to her. We
cannot thank her enough for helping ease us into being owners of a
beautiful apartment on Lake Maggiore. We are only too happy to
recommend Vista Lago Homes to anyone considering purchasing a
property, you will not be disappointed in any way with the level of
service and commitment provided by Sue and her husband Martin."
Mr & Mrs O Jacobsen
"I just wanted to once more thank you
for the excellent cooperation we had and your link with the Italian
agent which resulted in us acquiring this marvellous apartment in
Ghiffa. It is really an exceptional thing! Very many members of our
family have already been there and all of them have liked it 100%.
So our experience is that you have really succeeded with this
"The service provided by Vista Lago
Homes is exceptional! Friendly and professional. They listen to
what you want and have a wealth of local knowledge and contacts.
Their property portfolio is second to non in the area."
