I wish David Collins book “Buying & Restoring in Tuscany” had been around 12 years ago when we bought our apartment in Bagni di Lucca. We knew nothing about anything and stumbled our way through the process.
While we were lucky and didn’t come across too many problems, many people do, and David’s book is the perfect introduction for people starting out on the exciting and frightening journey of their Tuscan adventure.
I was delighted to be invited to the book launch at the lovely LuccaLibri in Lucca.
Norma Jean Bishop, from Grapevine magazine, introduced us to David and gave some background on the book and David’s experience as an engineer and design and project manager. His knowledge is based on his work on hundreds of properties in Tuscany and he is passionate about this gorgeous area.
The book covers such subjects as, Do Dream Homes in Tuscany Really Exist, Property Surveys, Buying a House in Tuscany, Building Plans and Permits, Old Tuscan Roofs, Pools in Tuscany and the very complicated Struggling with IMU Property Taxes.
Questions were invited and several audience members had some interesting things to ask David. Most people buying Italian houses have had difficulties somewhere in the process and David proved to be very knowledgable on all fronts.
It was a very entertaining evening and I wish David every success with his book…and future editions…there is much more to be revealed.
