Is it possible to buy a property in Troina if I am not an Italian citizen?
Yes. The project is open to everyone.
Can you help me with citizenship?
No. Italian and European law provides for the requisites to become Italian citizens who do not depend on the Municipality.
If I were to buy a house in Troina, would I have to live there all year round?
No. Obviously you are free to live in your home whenever you want.
Can I access the bonuses on building renovations currently in force in Italy?
In general yes. To find out with absolute certainty, you need to appoint an architect or engineer to start a study on the chosen property.
Can I get more information (photos, floor plans, details) about the properties?
The information we have is already shared on the site. If you want more details about the house, in relation to plans, elevations, sections, the team that takes care of the project will hire architects for you to create what you want; if you are interested in having more photos, the team will hire a photographer for you to take them.
When can I come and visit the properties?
The visits will be carried out on fixed days and in any case only upon reservation.
If I had to buy a house in Troina, how many and what taxes would I pay?
The municipal tax for a second home depends on the size and where it is located (in the historic centre, for a 70 square meter property it is worth around 200 euros/year). The municipal tax on waste amounts to between 100 and 150 euros/year, if there are no residents in the property and if it is a second home.
What are the times to receive an opinion from the municipal technical office?
In relation to the type of opinion and/or authorization requested, the estimated time is 10-15 days.
When is the best time to visit Borgo di Troina?

How long does it take to complete the property purchase phase?
Depends on existing valid documentation; usually from a few weeks to a few months.
Does the house really cost €1?
Yes. It represents the symbolic value of the property. However, it will be your job to renovate it.
How can I proceed to buy a house for €1?
After you have chosen the house, you will need to sign the expression of interest form and accompany it with the payment of a security deposit of €5000 which will be fully refunded once the renovation has been completed according to the steps envisaged in the project.
What are the time steps envisaged by the project for the renovation of a house for €1?
Within a year of the purchase, the restructuring project must be drawn up; work must begin within two years and work must be completed within five years. All must comply with current urban plans.
How much does a €1 home renovation cost?
For houses costing €1, an average price of €1.000/1.200 per square meter can be estimated. To get a more reliable estimate, you can hire a professional who will carry out a feasibility study.
Is there a guide to better understand the 1 euro house project?
Visit with a click the page dedicated to our project.
How can I go about buying a house?
Once you have chosen the house, you will be put in contact with the real estate agency that deals with the property. You will therefore be sent a preliminary purchase to be accompanied by a sum as a deposit to block the purchase. The remaining part of the payment must be made within the signing of the deed of sale.
If I buy a house NOT at the symbolic price of €1, do I have time constraints on a possible renovation?
No. You can intervene whenever you want (unless the house presents a danger to public safety).
If I buy a house at a not symbolic price of €1, how much is the cost of the renovation?
It is not possible to know for sure in advance. Any house could lend itself to multiple uses (private homes or B&Bs for example), so it will be necessary to hire an architect or engineer to start a study on the property chosen to get an idea of the construction costs of your project.
