“The Home as a Primary Asset and How to Buy It Safely.” Notaries and consumer associations team up to inform the public



“The Home as a Primary Asset and How to Buy It Safely” is the information campaign that the Notariat launched on 21 September along with 13 Consumer Associations (Adiconsum, Adoc, Adusbef, Altroconsumo, Assoutenti, Casa del Consumatore, Cittadinanzattiva, Confconsumatori, Federconsumatori, Lega Consumatori, Movimento Consumatori, Movimento Difesa del Cittadino, Unione Nazionale Consumatori), whereby the National Council of Notaries intends to distribute leaflets containing all useful information, so that home buyers can be fully informed about all aspects of the transaction.

On 21 September last, notaries together with the consumer groups met citizens in public squares in five Italian cities (Rome, Cagliari, Catania, Como, Salerno) providing free basic information and distributing explanatory sheets on what needs to be done to buy a home safely.

The “The Home as a Primary Asset” campaign is part of the process of collaboration between the Notariat and the consumer associations that started in 2005 and which led to the creation of thirteen Citizens’ Guides on notarial issues of general interest: mortgages, value for money, the preliminary contract, rent to buy, buying real estate under construction, certificate purchase, real estate auctions, inheritance, donations, cohabitation, marriage, filiation. The Citizens’ Guides are available HERE and on the websites of the Consumer Associations involved. The initiative of the National Council of Notaries – which collaborated with the MEF and Assilea, the Italian Leasing Association, in drafting the Guide “Leasing Residential Real Estate” also aims to communicate and disseminate the campaign “A Home? Yes You Can!“, making available to the public – in the Download area of – all the information on “Buying and Renting“, “Furnishing” and “Restructuring and Renovation“.
