@FGan asks:

My father died intestate in Italy 30 years ago. It was his verbal request that the apartment he owned with my mother be inherited by my eldest brother, which the family (my other 3 brothers and myself) agreed to, by signing a letter stating our acceptance.

@Mark D asks:

I love Italy - the music, culture, food and language. Would love to move there.I'm self-employed and run my own business in the UK in a technical field and one where Italy appears to be seeking people to fill.

Hi Everyone, I am looking at buying a very old property in Italy that currently does not have power or water connected to the site. I am wondering if anyone has any experience around the cost or process for connect power to a property in a situation like this?  Thanks!Laura
