Expenses: There’s currently no property tax on the house, as per rules here around owning only one home in Italy.

Per annum: There are street taxes (TARSU) of around €120; water charges of around €100; electricity around €500; and a couple of gas bottles (for the cooker and a portable gas heater) at €26 each. There are mains-gas fixings above and below outside the house – that’ll be a future option, which will involve a connection fee, and may cost more per unit than the bottles, but will be a lot more convenient. Gas bottles have to be trollied down from a nearby parking place.

Depending on where you come from in the world, there may be additional costs that I am not aware of: you should inquire in ex-pat forums or with your embassy about that, according to what country you come from.

Community: There are several groups for Guardia Sanframondi on Facebook; see The Insider’s Guide To Guardia Sanframondi book, as it has links in the back pages. There are many USA, Canada, South Africa and UK citizens with houses in Guardia, who will be able to offer advice around their specific experiences here.
