12 November 2021 – Getting a codice fiscale so you can rent or buy a property in Italy in order to apply for a long term visa is one of the most confusing parts of the visa process. The consulate will tell you that you need to first get a tentative lease or purchase agreement and then notify them to have a CF sent to you so you can complete the transaction OR hire a legal firm in Italy to apply for you before searching for a place. The problem with the first option is that it is very hard to get a property owner to make the initial agreement if you don’t already have the CF – especially if you aren’t in one of the major population centers. They are usually not well informed about the process or just decide that it is too much of a hassle. I chose the second option and used Studio Legale Metta to apply for me. There was a cost involved, but it was very much worth it – even with the additional fee they charged because you have to give them a limited power of attorney in Italy to act on your behalf. SLM was very efficient and professional. They responded to my initial contact immediately and emailed out the paper work for me to sign within 24 hours. Once I signed and emailed back the signed documents, they said it would take up to 9 business days. I had my CF within 4! I couldn’t be more satisfied with their service. I highly recommend them!
