Moving to Italy.
    
Moving to Italy and purchasing a home can be a lot to deal with, a lot of everything quite frankly!! We were lucky to find English speaking real estate agent, lawyer, notary and builder.  Which was a necessity as our Italian language skills were non-excistant. The purchase process went as smooth as expected, but several other problems arouse along the way and as the years have gone by we can only come to one conclusion: -Having Marco as our lawyer was a life saver! He was always there for us, responding quickly to any, and every, worry we had.  Ha gave great advice and got us out of very stressful situations.  Having lived here for 5 years now, we have gotten more experience of local lawyers (Marco is located 50km from us) and would not recommend any of them!  In the small towns the lawyers are too nestled into the society. Having a lawyer from a larger city as Lecce was a very good decision. Previous to moving to Italy neither of us had ever needed the assistance of a lawyer, beeing here and having to go to court was extremely stressful but with Marco by my side I felt confident that truth would prevail, and it did.

Buying a Trullo in Italy.
    
As a non-Italian looking to purchase a property in Puglia, Marco’s assistance was invaluable. Marco explained the purchasing process, advised on possible areas of concern and provided ad-hoc translations when needed. Without Marco’s assistance, buying our Trullo could have been an incredibly difficult and expensive process. I’m really glad that we had Marco’s support and I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone about to embark on the same process. Aaron Cue aaronjcue@gmail.com

Purchasing my property in Italy.
I used Studio Legale Magaraggia eight years ago when purchasing my property in San Foca – Marco was instrumental in a smooth transaction.  He has helped me with a legal dispute after the purchase which was satisfactorily resolved – and more recently a problem with house insurance – again with a satisfactory result.  I would trust him to do a good job and he has a good command of English.

Patient and thorough advocate.
When it comes to legal matters it’s important to get it right. For this reason I went to Marco Magaraggia for advice. I had heard from English -speaking friends that as well as being an excellent lawyer he could also speak fluent English. I found him to be friendly, helpful and efficient. Even though I could get by in Italian I needed to be sure I didn’t miss or misinterpret anything and I was looking for a patient and thorough advocate. I wasn’t disappointed.

Hello Marco!
Now the court case is over both Sheila and I would like to thank you very much for all your help in resolving the matter, very much to our satisfaction. I think without your help the outcome could have been very much different. Finally may we take this opportunity to offer any help you may require if you have other potential English clients. We have no problem in you passing our contact details to them. We would be happy to tell them about the tremendous job you did for us. Best regards Bob bob@kilburn.me

Notre nouvelle maison dans les Pouilles.
     Nous avons acheté un terrain dans les Pouilles pour y construire une maison. Nous savions comment nous y prendre en France mais en Italie les choses se sont révélées très différentes. Lorsque nous avons croisé notre premier problème, nous avons eu la chance qu’un ami nous conseille Marco Marragia. Depuis il nous aide à chaque étape.  Il a toujours été très disponible et  a toujours trouvé une solution à nos problèmes (relation voisinage, mairie, entreprise, assurance, urbanisme, enquêtes diverses, contrat…). Dans nos rapports difficiles avec les entreprises il a su trouvé le juste ton pour parler avec eux. Nous regrettons vraiment beaucoup de ne pas avoir démarrer avec lui dès l’achat du terrain et le choix de l’entreprise. Se faire assister d’un avocat est finalement indispensable d’autant plus que Marco est beaucoup plus qu’un avocat. Aurélia  Hornecker & Emmanuel Nessi, France. a.hornecker@gmail.com We bought land in Puglia to build a house. We knew how to do it in France, but in Italy things have been very different. When we ran into our first issue, we were fortunate that a friend advises us Marragia Marco. Since then, he helps us at every step. He has always been very available, helpful and has always found a solution to our problems (neighborhood relationship, town hall, business, insurance, urban planning, various surveys, contracts, …). In our difficult relationship with the companies he has found the right tone to speak with them. We really regret not having started with him from the land purchase and the choice of the company. Have the assistance of a lawyer is ultimately essential especially since Marco is more than a lawyer. Aurélia  Hornecker & Emmanuel Nessi, France. a.hornecker@gmail.com

Thanks Marco!
     Marco acted for us in 2013 when we bought a property in the historic centre of Cisternino. He led us carefully through the conveyancing process, ensuring that each stage was fully explained and understood. We always felt we were in good hands and that was confirmed when everything went through swiftly and with little fuss. Marco has stayed in touch with us since and we would not hesitate to recommend him to other non-Italian house-buyers.” (Ashley and Katie from the UK) - katie.mott@btinternet.com

A total professional & a great guy!
     Dear Marco, You are a wonderful man and we do not know what we would have done without you, certainly the outcome of our case would have been very different. You turned a desperate and miserable situation into a positive outcome and secured the sale of my disabled mother’s property, despite it seeming hopeless. We can’t thank you enough for all you have done, for your patience and guidance and for going above and beyond to sort out this awful and complex situation. Our deepest thanks. Benjamin, Rebecca & Jane Garland

Bouwgrond in Polignano.
    
Beste Marco, Verleden week ben ik eigenaar geworden van een bouwgrond in Polignano. Mede door uw goede zorgen en bijstand is dit (tumult bij de eerste notaris ten spijt) zeer goed en correct verlopen. U heeft alles in zeer goede banen geleid en door uw tussenkomst ben ik van zeer veel discussies, vertaalwerk, opzoekwerk enz. gespaard gebleven. Je regelde zelfs alles voor mij op de bank… fiscaal code, rek. nr enz. Nogmaals dank voor dit alles. Van zodra de bouwwerken aanvangen zullen we zeker verder van uw diensten gebruikmaken. Saluti, Paul Van der Linden

I plan to continue working with Marco in the future!     
Living in New York I was very fortunate to correspond with Marco Magaraggia concerning possible purchase of a home in Puglia .Being a long distance situation, Marco was more than forth giving with advice on the Italian legal requirements. He worked with  Italian realtors and home owner and was in constant touch with me with results and information. It gave me comfort in knowing he had my best interest in mind and followed through with every question I had  during all the correspondence.  I would highly recommend working with his law firm . I plan to continue working with Marco in the future. Patricia New York patricialaltrella@gmail.com

I plan to continue working with Marco in the future!     
Marco managed the purchase of our land in Puglia and our house in Basilicata with great professionalism. He helped us to understand the procedures and dealt with the officials, interpreting from English to Italian as required. We will use him in the future and would not hesitate to recommend the firm to others.’ Hilary Shenton hilary@zarza-alpacas.com

His professional advice on the Italian legal system was invaluable!     
Marco Magaraggia assisted us in the purchase of our house in 2007 and two years later assisted in resolving a boundary dispute with our neighbour. With the assistance of our Geometra he identified the official boundary line and visited our neighbour to resolve the dispute amicably. We later sought his advice on the subject of our Wills.  He is quick to respond to requests for help and his professional advice on the Italian legal system was invaluable. The fact that he speaks English is an added bonus. Donald Goulding donaldgoulding@yahoo.co.uk

Neighbor dispute.     
wee jaar geleden moest ik op zoek naar een advocaat hier in Puglia, omwille van een burendispuut met betrekking tot roerend en onroerend goed. Via een vriend kwam ik in contact met Meester Marco van het advocatenkantoor Studio Legale Magaraggia in Lecce. Een zeer integer man die Ik graag wil bedanken voor zijn correcte hulp en bijstand, zijn immer goed onderbouwde betogen voor de rechtbank en zijn niet-aflatende inzet voor mijn zaak. M. Vanderoost   Two years ago I had to look for a lawyer here in Puglia, because of a neighbor dispute concerning movable and immovable property. Through a friend I came in contact with LL.M. Marco from the law firm Studio Legale Magaraggia in Lecce. A man of integrity whom I would like to thank for his correct help and assistance, his always well-founded arguments in court and his persistent commitment to my case. M.
