Q. My mother left a UK will stating I should inherit her property in Italy. I would like to sell it. How can I do it?
A. You shall proceed step by step as follows:
1) execute the UK Will in Italy;
2) transfer the property in your name, under said Will;
3) put the property on the market;
4) and when you find a buyer, sign the sale deed in front of an Italian officer (e.g., a notary).
All activities above can be completed by means of a Power of Attorney document, i.e., a document giving a representative you trust the authority to act on your behalf without the need for you to be present in Italy.
