Permanent residency in Italy or France from Australia

Jump to last reply

My wife & I, in our mid 50's and our 18yr old daughter are wanting to live in Italy or France for a number of years. We have an independent income and so don't need to and don't want to work in Italy or France. Can you please give us some direction as to what we need to do. We are travelling over to Europe in December for a few months and whilst we are there, we would like to travel to Italy and France to perhaps see some Migration Lawyers/Consultants. Can you make any suggestions as to a good Migration Consultant/Lawyer who can speak English that we could meet whilst over there. If there are any good websites which may help we would appreciate that or if there are any pitfalls that we need to look out for. We have read that in order to gain Residency, one of the things that we need is a long term rental lease for a home or apartment, but how can we get this prior to gaining residency??
