A recent Italian government incentive has seen local councils set about collecting unpaid utility bills on 2nd home owners. Some foreign owners who have not embraced the system for paying utilities or have not provided the necessary details to register with the local council will be receiving back dated bills and possibly a “late payment” fine. It is essential for all 2nd home buyers to ensure that they have registered with the local council and have in place a system for paying their utility bills. If you are unsure whether you have covered all your utilities and do not have a payment system in place then please contact Scalea Property Services and we will help you update your management for bill paying. This will include all other services - electricity, gas, phone/internet, TV and condominium. Please take our advice and ensure you are not avoiding this important issue. Leaving this problem will only cause more pain and empty pockets in the long run.
Scalea Property Services are now offering a full in house bill management service which will ensure you stay on top of those household bills for your home in Italy.
