The Catasto is going to be reformed. It’s a promise/threat that has been doing the rounds for the last 20 years, but this time it seems that Draghi is going to go through with it, despite the unpopularity it will bring.
At the moment unless you have your property reaccatastato after doing structural works, your rateable value will date from when it was built or as far back as the late 1950s – so bears little resemblance to reality.
The new system will base the entire calculation on the square metrage. Gone will be the vani catastali – the rooms which may or may not exist. All the classifications of house will also be simplified – so A/3 through to A/7 will probably just become a single class.
What will this mean? Well the doom mongers are telling us that if you live in Milan your Rateable value will go up by 300% Rome by 230% Bari by 33%. It won’t be that much, but for people who live in a 300mq apartment which has only 4 rooms the changes will come as a shock. Obviously at the moment this will not impact 1st home owners, as they pay no IMU/TASI, but for housebuyers and second home owners it will certainly increase purchase and running costs.
We are told that within a month or so there will be something presented to parliament.
