Buying a Property in Le Marche | Changes to the Italian IMU

Buying a Property in Le Marche | Changes to the Italian IMU | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Good news for Italian residents – the year 2013 has provided a welcome change to the Italian government’s usual snatch and grab attitude to taxes of all descriptions. IMU (Imposta Municipale Unica or Imposta Municipale Propria) this year will only be payable by second homeowners and by homeowners not resident in the country.

Whilst it is highly unlikely this stay of grace will continue into next year – indeed, we may find ourselves facing even more stringent charges if the government’s past actions and other tax increases are anything to go by – the news still came as a welcome relief to many people struggling to make ends meet in the current economic climate.

Especially pleased will be residents of My Little Italian Village, many of whom have been shocked by the vast increase in rubbish removal charges this year. A change in the waste disposal company used may well account for such a hike in prices, as well as the habit of charging per square metre of a property as opposed to number of inhabitants. Second home owners will find themselves paying through the nose despite only being in their properties for a month or two a year, and this rather impractical method of calculation has also led to an acquaintance of mine – a single woman living alone in a large apartment - paying over three times as much as the family of six who live in a much smaller property next door.

This year’s annual bills have been greeted with such an uproar that changes might be forthcoming in 2014, although I doubt many people are holding their breath in anticipation of a more favourable outcome.

If you are not an Italian resident, but are in possession of a home here, then it is important not to let the bi-annual IMU payments slip your mind. The first must be paid in June, and the second in December.

If you are in Italy at the time, then you can always approach your local comune, where they will usually be happy to print out the necessary F24 form – already filled out with your details – for you to take along to your bank and make the payment.

If you are out of the country, or particularly technologically inclined, then the F24 form can be found online, either through your online banking, or via the website for the Agenzia dell’Entrate. It is worth ringing your comune before attempting to fill out the form in order to check the IMU quotas for that year, at which point the form can usually be completed and paid online.

Some comuni will also provide you with the appropriate bank details for you to make the transfer directly, although it is important to ensure that within the bank transfer you are paying both the comune percentage as well as the percentage due to the Italian government (Agenzia dell’Entrate), otherwise your IMU payment will not be complete. The comune may well direct you to pay the latter elsewhere.

Luxury country house for sale in a magic setting in Le Marche Italy | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

The landscape, people, food, wine, history and culture come together to create the rich tapestry that is Italy. When people the world over are asked what countries they would most wish to visit, Italy always comes out near the top.

Le Marche has long been a best kept secret but increasingly, the region is finding popularity with second-home owners and holiday home investors. There are few areas in the country that can offer such an alluring mixture of unspoilt landscapes. Le Marche is true storybook Italy.

Located between the Adriatic Sea and the majestic Apennine Mountains, Le Marche sits snuggled between the warm coastal waters, dreamy Umbria, prosperous Emilia-Romagna and rugged Abruzzo. Its borders also briefly touch Tuscany and Lazio.

Beautifully situated, Le Marche contains immense geographical loveliness. It has everything: incredible countryside from the Sibillini Mountains to the glorious coastline, castellated hilltops, marvellous beaches, stunning mountains, rolling hills, untouched natural parks, wonderful wildlife, rich heritage of history and monuments as well as spectacular art and architecture. The area contains gorgeous vineyards and fields drenched yellow in summer sunflowers, all surrounded by snow-capped mountains and glistening sea.

One of the most striking features of the Marche region is the numerous stunning hillside locations, dotted with charming historic villages and medieval castles. Below in the valleys, larger towns are storehouses of incredible architecture. Romanesque churches abound in even the smallest villages. [...]

In fact, the Marches with all their food and wine is appreciated everywhere. They are the main subject of a reality that relies on quality beginning with the products chosen not only for breakfast and snacks, but also for the Point of Sale.

The location is strategic, five kilometers from the exit highway and three from Porto San Giorgio.

5 tips to better sell your home

5 tips to better sell your home | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it
  1. When you are selling your home, choose a Realtor wisely. In order to ensure that your home buying or selling experience is a successful one, the agent you choose to work with should have vast knowledge of real estate.
  2. The price makes all the difference. If you truly want to sell your home, then you have to be realistic about what it is worth in the current market.
  3. Add some energy efficient items in your home before you put it up for sale. Upgrades like solar-powered features, energy-efficient appliances and other green touches are very appealing to prospective buyers because each one represents possible savings.
  4. Empty your home out as much as possible, even if you’re still living there. Potential buyers want to picture themselves living there, and keeping the house clear of items makes this process simpler for them, while also giving you much less work to do later on.
  5. Don’t paint the interior colors that are your personal favorites. It’s always best to stick with a traditional neutral color, such as eggshell, white, cream or taupe.If you are planning to sell your home, one of the easiest and most effective ways to add value is to paint every room. You can most likely do it yourself, and it wouldn’t be that expensive

Le Marche: the Best Location in Italy for Home Buyers

Le Marche: the Best Location in Italy for Home Buyers | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Tuscany and Umbria, once considered the two most glamorous of all Italian destinations, have a new rival. Le Marche is fast acquiring a reputation as the Italian destination of choice for many Italians and foreigners in search of property.

Gorgeous countryside, lovely old towns and a sensational quality of life are part of the region’s allure. Bordering Tuscany, Umbria and the Adriatic Sea, Le Marche is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and interesting Italian regions. Its strategic location makes it a perfect spot for reaching all of the most important destinations of central Italy, including Ravenna, Siena, Florence, Assisi, Urbino, Gubbio and Perugia.

With its variety of landscapes, Le Marche is an enchanting distillation of Italy. To the east, the green-blue Adriatic Sea laps ashore, while the Apennine Mountains gently ease into verdant foothills dotted with Renaissance towns to the west. Another aspect that defines the region is its expanse of rolling hills, resplendent with ancient hilltop villages protected by their formidable walls.

Le Marche encompasses everything that Italy has to offer – sun, mountains, caves, lakes, sea and beaches. Medieval towns and villages. Farmland, folk traditions and religious parades. Skiing, horseback riding, hiking, sailing and biking. Art, architecture, museums, castles and forts. Good food and acres of thriving vineyards.

Le Marche boasts the highest number of museums and art galleries in Italy (there are 342 in 239 towns). There are architectural gems, antiquities and artistic landmarks from the Roman, Medieval, and Renaissance eras. The numerous beautiful small towns and villages of Le Marche are full of ancient churches and historic buildings, whilst the countryside is covered by rows of vines and olive groves. Many historic buildings around the region still boast works of art by painters such as Carlo Crivelli, Piero della Francesca and Raphael.

Le Marche offers 180 kilometres of coastline, which is characterised by wonderful beaches of golden sand, pebble or rock, picturesque bays, marinas and palm trees that are reflected in the blue Adriatic. Le Marche can boast one of the highest number of Blue Flag beaches of any region in Italy. The prestigious Blue Flag is awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and takes into account criteria such as beach quality, safety, cleanliness and water quality. [...]

Urbino among the best | The world's best student housing: the top 10 architecture projects | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Below are 10 examples of student accommodation buildings that go beyond the housing-by-numbers approach. From India to Denmark, Italy to America, they show how compact spaces for communal living can be thoughtfully planned and well built, to make decent places with a real sense of social vitality. From clustered hives to radial cities, bungalow grids to streets in the sky, they reveal a range of approaches that show alternatives to the current plague of grim pile 'em high slabs.

Free University of Urbino, Italy, by Giancarlo de Carlo
Urbino, Italy, 1962–5
Clustered on the crest of a low hill, about a kilometre outside the old city walls, the halls of residence of Urbino's Free University were designed by Italian architect Giancarlo de Carlo, a member of the radical Team 10group. The groups of flats, which accommodate 1,500 students, are splayed in a fan shape to maximise views and adjust with the tumbling contours of the landscape, allowing each room to enjoy an outdoor terrace on the roof of its lower neighbour. The form reinterprets the medieval jumble of the old hill-town, expressed in exposed concrete and brick, with each row of houses connected by space-age tubular walkways – allowing students to scurry between bedrooms unseen.

Move to Italy | Must-have Italian identification

Move to Italy | Must-have Italian identification | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

If you are planning to purchase a house in Italy, even if you are not intending to be a permanent resident, you will require a Codice Fiscale.

This tax code is the Italian equivalent to the British National Insurance number (NI) and the US Social Security number (SSN) and will be requested for identification purposes when carrying out large purchases or dealing with any paperwork of a bureaucratic/administrative nature.

The document can be obtained by dropping into your local Agenzia dell'Entrate with some form of photographic identification. Upon stating your purpose, you will be sent to the nearest Tabacchi to purchase the necessary marca da bollo (a stamp that corresponds to the cost of any administrative task undertaken for you by the Italian state) before waiting your turn with an administrator.

Your unique, 16 alphanumeric digit code can be calculated immediately, and you will then be provided with your Codice Fiscale document – it is not essential that you keep hold of this document at all times, but it is very important that you either memorise your Codice Fiscale or have it written down somewhere when heading out to tackle administrative procedure or to make large purchases.

Whereas previously a plastic Codice Fiscale card would then have been posted to you, this service is now obsolete. That card has now been combined with the Tessera Sanitaria (medical card), so will only be given to those eligible for healthcare in Italy. It is not a serious problem, as the only time a Codice Fiscale card came in really handy was when purchasing cigarette products from vending machines (it is used to check the age of the purchaser, and without the card, no sale can be processed).

It is worth bearing in mind that without your Codice Fiscale you will be severely limited in what you can do in Italy, so obtaining it must be top of your list of priorities upon arrival.

If you are moving to Italy permanently and you wish to make the most of the lower tax bracket on house purchases, the lower charges on bank accounts, the lower annual IMU charges and if you wish to purchase and/or insure a car in the country, then it will definitely be worthwhile becoming a resident.

It is worth noting that no longer being a British resident will severely restrict your possibilities for keeping investment funds in the country – many stocks, bonds and ISAs can only be purchased by British residents.

For most EU citizens, initial residency of five years is given, but permanent residency can be applied for if your situation requires and/or warrants it.

In order to apply for your Certificato di Residenza, you should first make your way to the Anagrafe office of the town hall (comune) that covers your catchment area.[...]

Condition checks of Apartment buildings:

  • Roof
