Rental Contract (15 replies)

We are in the process of applying for elective residency and juggling all the balls in the air, so to speak seems a bit of a challenge. As I understand it one must first obtain a rental contract prior to the visit to the Italian consulate in the US. 1 - Are landlords/owners willing to give rental contracts contingent upon successfully obtaining an ER Visa. 2 - Did you pay the deposits, realtor fee and first months rent upon issuance of the contract but during this waiting period? I understand it can take up to 90 days for the VISA to be granted. and the hold your passport so if one were to rent prior to and pay first month rent, fees, deposits anticipating a successful granting of the VISA you could not travel to use the property while waiting, is that so? Can anyone explain in detail how they navigated this illogical process? Can one apply for Elective residency while in Italy?

Tax (1 reply)

Hi All, We live in NYC and we bought a house in Castellammare del Golfo (Sicily) (Palazzodelgolfo.com) We will move there in our retirement but for now we will rent it and continue to work here in America. I was wondering if anyone can refer me a Italian-American Tax Expert for some help doing taxes. We have an Italian mortgage and a lot of receipt try to do some tax deductions. Thank you all:)
