The answer is certainly YES, according with the fact that Lebanon and Italy had ratified the reciprocity agreement or not; but in the negative case you can certainly set up an Italian company or other juridical entity and buy the property in the name of this one.

Hi Walid,

Yes, you should be able to buy property in Italy but it is a complicated process – to read an overview of the steps you'd need to go through, please click here.

The first step would be to hire a lawyer from your home country who has knowledge of property law in both Italy and your home country. They will be able to guide you through the process.

Do you already have a property in mind?
