Italian Renovation

With Abode managing your Italian renovation, you can be assured that you will be kept informed at every step of your project, no matter where you are. When considering the possibility of restoring an Italian property, rather than purchasing an already habitable abode, it is best to be aware of the likely timeframes.

Italian Project Management

Typically one should budget for a period of approximately six months for the issuing of planning permissions and sometimes up to a year. Every property is different of course, and some works can be undertaken almost immediately with the presentation of a simple certified declaration of start of works such as a "S.C.I.A." (Segnalazione Certificata di Inizio Attivita). Bear in mind also that rules and regulations can change greatly from one municipality to another, whereby something that is feasible in one place may not be in the neighbouring town.
