The process of buying and leasing property in Bali can be simple and straight-forward, if you have a comprehensive understanding of your rights as a buyer / lessee / lessor. There are however a range of issues that may affect your future investment. The Indonesian Government has only very recently started on digital records of land certificates.
For decades, this recording has always been in the form of hand-written records. It is not uncommon to see two official land certificates for the same plot of land. There are often disputes on claims on land, and thus due to the unique situation in Bali, our clients always request a property due diligence survey before any investments are made.
During our property due diligence survey, our team of property surveyors will cover all aspects that could potentially affect your future investment, such as:
- Is the property’s price is based on market value?
- Is the surrounding neighbourhood susceptible to natural disasters?
- Is the land in any current ownership disputes?
- Are there are any land laws limiting the usage of the land?
- Are there any zoning laws that would hinder your plans to develop and build?
- Are there any outstanding land taxes?
- Are the details on the land certificate verified?
- Are the land boundaries clearly marked?
- What is the legal status of the access road to and from your property?
- Are there any holds / mortgage rights over the property?
Our team checks on all the above points and more, depending on what area your future property is located; and in accordance with your development plans.
