Scroll down for expenses

I’m also working with Realpoint Property, a UK-based estate agency (realtor), if you prefer to buy through an agency. View the listing here: Realpoint listing

Expenses: There’s currently no property tax on the house, as the price when I purchased was so low and because it is the only property that I own in Italy. This might change when you buy the house.

Per annum: There are street taxes (TARSU) of around €120; water charges of around €85; electricity around €420; and a couple of gas bottles for the cooker at €26 each (including delivery). There are mains-gas fixings outside the house above and below – 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 carried or trollied down from a nearby parking place.
Depending on where you come from in the world, there may be additional costs: e.g. I’m a European citizen (coming from Scotland) and so have the right to live and work here with minimal fuss (pre-Brexit!), and I pay taxes much as I would there… but I’m aware that other nationalities have to go through more processes and possibly costs. You’ll have to inquire in ex-pat forums or with your embassy about that, according to what country you come from. There are several groups for Guardia Sanframondi on Facebook, which I can link you to if you don’t know them already – or see The Insider’s Guide To Guardia Sanframondi book: 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 own experiences here.
