Preliminary contract

Contratto preliminare/Compromesso

In Italy ownership of a property changes directly after the conclusion of the notarial sales contract and is transferred to the buyer; registration of the property at the Land Registry is not needed for this! For this reason it is customary in Italy to conclude a preliminary before completion of the final deed. It is a private written contract which is legally binding for all parties to the same extent as the sales contract and can only be amended or supplemented with the agreement of both parties. continue
