Hi there, I am buying a house in Italy and the Notary has asked that i send the cleared funds to his account 7 days before the date of the reading / key handover.
I have a euro account in another country but not italy therefore cant do the bankers draft stuff. I just feel a little apprehensive about transferring such a lot of money (its a big villa) to someone and having to just sit there and wait a whole week without the money before receiving the keys.
Am I crazy for being suspicious of this? My lawyer thinks it's normal but thought I would ask here for some thoughts.
Thanks very much indeed!
