Hello,

Can anyone help me - especially any Australians.

 

I have an Australian Client for whom I refurbished their house on Lake Como, now they are living in Italy for over 12 months, and in their Pension years.

 

@NewComor asks:

Hi,

I have just bought an apartment in Italy and I am feeling a little lost and helpless.. I am not planning to move to Italy for another two or three years, so I would definitely need to avoid the consumption part of the utilities cost.

@Mark D asks:

Spese condominiale - we signed a contract to rent an apartment in March this year. The rent is a fixed amount per month plus a contribution of 200 EUR per month for le spese condominiale.
