@Tabbi asks:

Hello, new user and new home owner here. I would be grateful if anyone has any practical tips on dealing with damp! Photos attached.  I'd like to deal with it as naturally as possible and then finish with a final lime render.

@Sara Lee asks:

hi everyone 

I am about to purchase a villa in Puglia in January.

We have reliably been informed that we only need to pay 2% sales tax as opposed to 9% if we register it as a Casa prima within 18 months.
