May a foreign resident get a mortgage from an Italian Bank in the process of buying a property in Italy?

Mortgages for buying property in Italy

What is the procedure? What documents are needed to be submitted?

The answer is YES! Non-Italian residents are legally entitled to obtain mortgages to buy a property in Italy.

However, due to the economic crisis and the new Anti-Money Laundering Regulation, over the past few years Italian Banks had made their mortgage-policy stricter especially when dealing with non-Italian residents. The reasons of this policy can be found in a) the personal responsibility of Bank Directors that must verify the source of the money that is used to buy the property (concerning the documents to provide the Bank with, see below) and b) properties are not more considered as sufficient warranty in case the buyer stops paying the mortgage installments (given the difficulty and the costs for enforcing the payment abroad Italy).

Nevertheless, there are still few Italian Banks willing to concede mortgages to non residents; this is one of the reasons why it is advisable to appoint a local Italian Law Firm that can assist the foreign buyer in this procedure.

A&B Law Firm has a strong business relationship with many Italian Banks with whom we are assisting foreign clients for many years so far.

First of all, it is worth to specify that an Italian mortgage can be granted not just in euro but also in a different currency (such as American Dollars or Pounds).

The process to obtain a mortgage involves several costs, namely:

  1. Mortgage application fees;
  2. Surveyor fees (when applying for a mortgage to buy a property, the bank appoints a surveyor in order to make an Evaluation Report to give the property a value on the basis of which the mortgage will be granted);
  3. Mortgage taxes;
  4. Insurance and translation fees if required.

The chances to obtain a mortgage for buying property in Italy are conditioned upon several parameters, such as:

  1. The amount of the sum requested as loan; Banks usually grant no more than 60/70% of the purchase price according to the Evaluation Report drafted by the surveyor appointed (see above);
  2. Applicant nationality;
  3. Financial status of the applicant; on this regard, it should be noted that Italian Banks require to know whether the applicant is capable (under a financial point of view) of sustaining the loan. This is the reason why it is usually requested a copy of the applicant’s last Tax Declaration (which must be translated in Italian and legalized or through Apostille or by the Italian Consulate of the Country of residency of the applicant)

A&B Law Firm will be able to suggest their clients the most suitable Bank where applying for obtaining the mortgage.

The timing to have an answer may vary from case to case. It usually takes few weeks. Once the application is approved, in case the mortgage has been requested for buying a specific property, the mortgage contract is signed in front of the Notary at the same time of the signing of the final deed for transferring the ownership of the property.  An officer of the Bank usually attends the meeting and provides the seller with the check (which amounts to the sum granted as mortgage).

SUM UP OF THE DETAILS FOR OBTAINING A MORTGAGE IN ITALY

  1. Italian Banks usually concede a mortgage that can last from 5 up to 30 years;
  2. Italian Banks usually accept mortgage request for a sum amounting not less than 50,000 euro;
  3. A mortgage can not be grated for a sum that covers the 100% of the cost of the property (the maximum mortgage can cover the 70/80% of the purchase price);
  4. In case the applicant is more than 70 years, Italian Banks usually require for the signature of another (younger) applicant that will be jointly liable;
  5. Generally mortgages are granted for purchasing residential properties.

    Hello, my wife have a GBP mortgage with an Italian bank which is a variable loan so the interest rate has reached very high levels recently. Is it possible to re mortgage with an another bank on a fixed rate mortgage.

    We are based in the UK at the moment.

    • Italy Law Firms Staff says:

      Ciao Mark,
      thanks for your post.
      Italian Law provides the possibility to move your mortgage from an Italian Bank to another one. It is not for sure, obviously, to find a Bank available to give you a fix rate but this will be eventually a matter of negotiation. Please send an email to info@italylawfirms.com and we will put in contact with our Italian Bank brokers who will provide you with a more detailed consultation.

  2. Mirko says:

    Ciao, I’m an Italian citizen but I live and work in the US and I’m enrolled in the AIRE (associazione Italiana residenti all’estero). I would like to purchase a house in Italy and get a mortgage from an Italian bank and I have a couple of questions: Will that be a problem to get a mortgage, considering that I have a very high income but it’s not in Italy? Am I advantaged by being an Italian citizen and having lived in Italy for a long time? Would I get a similar rate as Italian residents? Would have a co-signer guarantor Italian resident help in any way?

    Thank you!

    • Italy Law Firms Staff says:

      Ciao Mirko
      many thanks for your email.
      Obtaining a mortgage from an Italian Bank as no resident is in theory possible, but each case must be evaluated specifically.
      In relation to your requests, please find our anserws below:
      – An income generated outside Italy could be a problem for Italian Banks but we can work on this;
      – Being an Italian resident aborad could be a benefit but no that important;
      – Havin a guarantor resident in Italy could be of help but it should be evaluated his financial capacity.

    Hello!
    I’m a 32-year-old Belgian with a stable Belgian contract (soon I’ll be transferred to the Italian payroll). I would love to buy a house in Italy to start a family. I’ve been to one bank and their proposal was rather disappointing:
    60% mortgage for 15 years with 4 % of interest.
    I’m in a very stable position at my work and I would like to have a better proposal. Do you think it’s possible?
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hello again!
    I forgot to add this question to my previous post on Sept. 10, 2022. I am hearing that banks will not accept mortgage loan applications (for Italian residents) for homes valued less that 118K euros–is this accurate information? Thank you for your help.

    • Italy Law Firms Staff says:

      Ciao Glenda
      it depends.. if the Italian Banks deems the loan request is not convenient to them, they can refuse the application. There dos not exist a certain mimimum amount.

  6. Glenda says:

    Hello, My husband and I (retired, both 69) are planning to become residents of Italy by February 2023. We wish to purchase our home after we become residents.

  9. Russell says:

    Hi – myself and my wife are considering a move to Sardinia and in doing so we could raise some of the funds from our home in the UK – let’s say £400,000 or roughly Euro 480,000, and let’s say the property costs Euro 700,000, we would need to borrow around Euro 220,000.

    I am just approaching 60 and my wife 63, so we are under 70.

    What term of loan might we get as I am 10 years off being 70, and what level of income would we need to obtain a mortgage of this amount? Would we be able to get an interest only mortgage for example?

    We have rental income, and we’d let our UK property too – so we’d have income, but not sure of the rules.

    If you could include some idea of howe this works, so we could look at what price of house we could go to in Sardinia, thank you.

    • Italy Law Firms Staff says:

      Ciao Russell,

  12. Paolo says:

    Hello, sorry if this question has been asked / answered but I could not find any related information.

    I have dual (Italian/Australian) citizenship, and currently living and working in Germany. I’d like to purchase a property in Italy to rent out as a holiday home and also use it for myself on occasion during the year. I would prefer to get an Italian mortgage for this but I can also get a personal loan here in Germany to purchase the property outright.

    What would you recommend I do and do you think that I am better off sourcing the money from Italy or from Germany? Will an Italian bank give me a mortgage for buy-to-let intentions?

    • Italy Law Firms Staff says:

      Ciao Paolo,
      thanks for your post.
      In theory is possible for an Italian NO resident to obtain a mortgage to buy a property in Italy from an Italian Bank. However, as faras we understand from your post, your income is generated outside Italy and this could be an difficulty fro Italian banks. Nevertheless, each case must be verified singularly, so please send us an email and our Italian Financial Broker will evaluate your case specifically.

        I am British having lived and worked in Italy for over 30 years. I have requested a mortgage of 50000 euro for work to my new house. They say that because of Brexit my son (23 year old student) has to be’ a “garante”. Is this true?

          Ciao Anne,
          many thanks for your post. There are not specific rules, in Italy a mortage is a kind of negotiation with the Bank. If they ask your son to be garante, this is a thing you maybe negotiate with them.
