In these cases tax + registry charges on residential property will total 9% of the ‘valore catastale’. These are calculated by the notary according to a number of assessment criteria which often results in a figure considerably below the purchase price. Agricultural land is currently subject to tax at 18% of its ‘valore catastale’. Agency fees are normally 3% of the purchase price, + IVA If an architect or geometra is employed, charges are generally calculated on a time-related basis. It is advisable to obtain quotes for any major works or renovation projects. Villatua recommends all prospective purchasers to seek advice on likely tax obligations, as individual circumstances may alter the amount significantly Luxury property in Tuscany: Classic Lucchese villa for sale
