«This is how it works – explains the mayor of Ollolai Efisio Arbau –: the owners of underutilized or unused homes, for which the property represents only a cost, sell their own dilapidated house to the municipality for a symbolic price. We then insert it in the circuit of Houses for 1 Euro in favour of purchasers who become the new owners, committed to renovating and using them».

Private individuals who want to sell, can choose one of two solutions: either they perform the restoration works themselves with the help of aid funds ranging from 20 to 60% depending on the type of intervention, or the work can be carried out by the municipality and a third-party operator. In the latter case, the private individual sells at a symbolic price the unused and/or underutilized house for the total restructuring and the admission of the property in theHouses for 1 Euro circuit.
