I'm sure Cristina Mattei (solicitor Pescara - Email avvocato_mattei(AT)hotmail.com) will give you an idea of what she would cost to help get it sorted. From what I've read elsewhere Levi is very right in saying it is not cheap to do so. If he is still about Marco Faieta (Notaio Pineto) was very nice and speaks very good English. Good luck!

Iíve only done a transfer into my name after my husband died, so a bit different. Youíll need a notaio, something which proves your ex relinquishes his half of the property, then it needs to be re-registered in your name on the cadastral register and you will have to pay the tax, as if youíd bought half the property. Itís not going to be cheap. You could try going to your local CAF office and see if they can help. They are a sort of citizens advice type thing and therefore cheaper than a notaio, although you might need a notaio anyway. Also pay attention that they transfer not only the house but also the land, which may be registered separately.

I donít know what you can do if your ex is uncooperative. Good luck.

Residency pros and cons ( not comprehensive, just from what I
Know)

Pro.
1 lower tax when purchasing a property
2 needed for buying a car
3 lower tariffs for utilities and bank accounts
4 in event of disaster, government help
5 no tax ( council tax equivalent ) on your first house

Cons
1 must complete a tax return yearly
2 should change to Italian driving license
3 have to pay tax on second home in uk

Iím sure others can add to both.

It all depends on your personal circumstances, if you own a big/ high council tax property in the uk, what you have to pay in tax can wipe out all the benefits of being resident.

You have to pay the equivalent to IMU on your property in UK as second home/s and also on rental income but I think pension (state) is tax exempt. Where about are you, because there are many good comercialiste and someone might know one close to you.

If youíve already bought your property in Italy and paid the non resident tax, thereís little to be gained by becoming resident unless you really are.
