Any ideas why Italy Rediscovered are no longer answering calls on their Calabria and UK numbers

Hi Ros,

Passed their office in Vibo Marina and it is empty.
There are large signs on the window advertising for new tenants.

Are they not affiliated with 'Italy Lettings'? Does anyone know if someone is still managing their lettings website?

We visited the office,apparently it closed down around three or four months ago.Word has it they had a lot of problems and lost a lot of money so its a shame they were so unfortunate.

I eventually managed to contact a guy called Murphy in the UK on Hannah Highgate's old mobile number.

I particularly wanted to find out what was happening re Baia Dei Fiori on behalf of a friend.

He said they had scaled down the office staff (presumably to one !!!).

He said Italy Rediscovered had dropped some of its developments and would be marketing for VFI in the future.

Hello all,

Yes they did leave Calabria about 3 or 4 months ago. The office was closed down, they still operate from the Uk. People who bought through them should not worry as the contracts are through the developers or other agents so all will still go ahead as long as a preliminary contract was signed.

Last I heard they were operating from their UK base in Exeter

I have been told by 2 former employees that Italy Rediscovered is no longer in business. There are no replies to emails and nobody answers calls to the Exeter office so I don't really know what you hope to gain by suggesting that it is business as usual.

Anyone who has purchased through Italy Rediscovered would be wise to double check with their lawyers (or their own documentation) who the preliminary contracts are with - Italy Rediscovered or the Developer, they must ensure bank guarantees are in place, and must check the whereabouts of the money they have paid todate.

We all thought the Italian Connection/Medsea developments/50% deposits were secure until they bolted and left a huge financial hole.

Hi Rosalind,

Good advice when a company stops picking up the telephone.

I did a quick check and they appear to still be an active company with all financial reports submitted to Companies House. Whether they are still trading though is another matter.
