Tax amounts are tabulated by law:
The IMT is the Municipal Tax on onerous transactions of real estate. It is calculated based on the purchase price of the property.
Rates range from 2% to 8%.
For properties between €550,836 up to €1,000,000, the flat rate is 6%.
Above 1,000,000 euros, the IMT in 2020 is 7.5%.
Rustic and agricultural plots have a fixed rate of 5%
Urban lots have a flat rate of 6.5%.
Stamp duty is calculated against the sales price.
The rates are:
Property: one-time fee of 0.8% on the declared value.
Mortgage: One-time rate of 0.6% on the mortgage value.
Depending on the purchase price of the property, lawyers generally work with fees ranging from 0.5% to about 1%. Some lawyers may agree to a flat fee, but usually the work is calculated at a percentage based on the purchase price.
Notarial expenses, registration of ownership, various documents
The total costs of all these expenses range from €500 to €1,500.
IMI is calculated based on a table issued by the Government, and the rate ranges from 0.3% to 0.8% of the taxable asset value (which is usually much lower than the value of the acquisition).

Other expenses that may arise (e.g. the maintenance of the property)
