CHN citizen buying Italian property

A "Notaio" is an Italian public officer who is responsible for certifying legal transactions, including the purchase of a property. The role of a Notaio in Italy is similar to that of a notary public in other countries, but with broader responsibilities.

If you are a Chinese citizen who wants to buy a property in Italy, you will likely need to work with a Notaio. The Notaio will help to ensure that the purchase contract is legally binding and that all parties involved in the transaction understand their rights and obligations.

The Notaio will review and certify all documents related to the purchase, including the title deed, and will ensure that any outstanding taxes and fees related to the property have been paid. They will also register the purchase with the local land registry and ensure that the property is transferred into your name.

It is important to note that Notaios in Italy are not lawyers, although they have a legal background and are authorized by the Italian government to perform certain legal functions. If you have any questions or concerns about the purchase process, it is recommended to seek the advice of a qualified legal professional.
