Guide to Buying a Mobile Home in Italy

The Italian Property Market

An increasing number of foreigners have taken to buying property in Italy over the course of the past fifteen years. The increase in real estate purchases in Italy by overseas buyers really took off following the integration of Italy into the EU.

With the advent of the European Union, more and more foreign nationals began buying different types of real estate within Italy. This included commercial, residential, holiday and mobile homes.

The vast majority of foreign nationals who have taken to buying and owning rproperty in Italy are from within one or another of the European Union nations. With that said, British investors have been particularly active in buying and investing in property in Italy over the past five to ten years.

The prime property purchases in Italy in recent years have been concentrated fairly heavily in rural regions of the country like Tuscany, Abruzzo and Calabria.

Buying Mobile Homes in Italy

Mobile homes and caravans offer an excellent and versatile method of buying property in Italy. A cheap and easy way of climbing onto the property ladder in Italy, mobile homes offer the buyer the freedom to move around the country and take their home with them.

There are many residential and holiday parks around Italy offering short and long term stays. Certain mobile home parks in Italy can offer similar facilties to other European parks typically including gas, electricity, water and even internet connectivity.

Buying a Mobile Home in Italy

The actual process of buying a mobile home to live in in Italy is fairly straightforward and is not restricted as much as buying bricks and mortar.

Most mobile home parks and caravan sites will allow you to rent a pitch from them for an anual fee from the outset. There are very few if any remaining freehold plots left in Italy that will allow you to actually own the plot of land that your mobile is sited on - you will have to buy your own land and apply for the relative planning for this.

As with all purchases make sure that you have a contract written up with the property details, what's included and what is not. Also ensure that you talk direct with the mobile home park owners - that they are happy with you buying the mobile home or caravan and remaining on the site. Are there any restriction regarding age and condition of the units - these are all questions you need to ask the park owners before agreeing to buy.
