Fisher Dilke and Linda Sampson
We live in London.
In September 2018 we bought an apartment in Siracusa, in Sicily. We were fortunate in having the Clemente Law Firm help us through the entire purchase, from our first interest in the property, through the rather robust offer stage, to the final signing of the Rogita, or completion.
Alessandro Clemente has a complete understanding of Italian property law – of which we of course knew nothing – which was mightily reassuring during what might otherwise have been a stressful process. In addition, his cannybusiness acumen was also helpful, as he guided us through the intricacies of a negotiation with vendors and estate agents in a culture rather new to us. Alessandro managed the entire purchase to a high professional standard, in record time. He even flew down to Sicily at the end to act as our proxy with a local notary.
We will unhesitatingly use the Clemente Law Firm when and if we have any further need for legal advice relating to our apartment, and we unreservedly recommend his firm to anyone wanting to buy a property in Italy.
