What types of properties are available for purchase in Bali?

Answer: There are various types of properties available for purchase in Bali, including villas, apartments, land plots, and commercial properties. You have a wide selection to find the perfect home or investment property that suits your needs and budget.

How is property ownership arranged in Bali for the secondary market? Is it true that I won't own the land on which my villa stands?

Yes, it is true. Indonesian law prohibits the sale of land to foreign citizens. Moreover, the law stipulates that everything on the land belongs to the landowner. Therefore, when buying properties, the land is leased or subleased for an initial term of up to 26 years, with an option for an extension of 15-20 years. When you purchase a property from the secondary market through Alex Villas, three contracts are typically signed: • A sale and purchase agreement for the property; • A land lease transfer agreement that transfers the remaining lease term to you; • A property management agreement with a managing company, if you choose to continue with the same service. If you decide to sell your property in the future, you will only need to transfer the land lease contract to the new owner.

Do you extend the land lease after the initial lease term expires?

Upon the purchase of any property from the secondary market, the land lease agreement may contain conditions for its extension. The specifics depend on the terms set out in the original contract between the previous owner and the landowner. Usually, the landowner would agree to extend the lease for an additional term (often 15-25 years), with the cost of extension calculated at the time of payment based on the market price of the land, excluding construction costs. Independent experts would typically determine this cost. However, it's crucial to review the terms of the existing lease agreement when buying property from the secondary market.

What additional expenses are associated with buying property in Bali?

Answer: In addition to the property's cost, you need to consider additional expenses such as technical audit services (optional), legal fees, registration fees, and possible bank commissions for transactions from another country. We will provide you with transparent information about all possible expenses, so you can properly plan your budget.
