Frequently asked questions

Property Purchase FAQs

How should I prepare for my arrival in Bali to buy one of your houses?

Our company provides comprehensive assistance throughout your travel and purchase process. Each customer receives personalized attention tailored to their needs. The steps involved are flexible:

  1. We'll discuss the best periods for your stay in Bali based on your availability.
  2. We can assist in arranging your accommodation at our partner hotels.
  3. During your stay, we'll manage property-related visits (architect, bank, notary) and organize cultural tours in Bali (at your expense).
  4. Our meetings in Bali will cover market insights, investment returns, and, most importantly, your preferences. We'll visit villas and land, set up a bank account, and afterward work together remotely.
Can I get credit for buying a villa in Bali?

Unfortunately, obtaining credit as a foreigner in Bali is generally not feasible (except in special cases). The availability of borrowing options depends on various factors and regulations in your home country, which we do not control.

What documents are needed to reserve a piece of land?

While in Bali, your passport suffices. It's preferable to settle the land payment before your departure, as your presence is necessary for document signing at the notary. If you're not on-site but wish to reserve land, a down payment allows us to secure it until your arrival.

Is it possible to visit properties in Bali once, and manage the rest of the project from abroad?

Typically, customers finalize the entire purchase process during their visit. However, if you are uncertain despite on-site visits, granting us power of attorney enables us to acquire the land on your behalf later.

Does owning property in Bali require a specific visa?

If your villa doesn't generate income, no specific visa is required. Otherwise, establishing a company is necessary for legal income generation.

Is there a withdrawal period?

Indonesia doesn't have a withdrawal period for property purchases. Given the considerable effort in finding and preparing legal documents, there's no provision for retraction. Paid fees cannot be refunded upon contract abandonment.

Do I need to open a bank account in Indonesia?

Renting mandates depositing rent in an Indonesian bank account. However, it is not necessary for you to open an Indonesian bank account since all property-related expenses will go through Amara Estate, and be deposited to you, regardless of where you have your bank account.

Can I easily open a bank account in Indonesia?

Your presence is required, but the process is swift. We'll assist you as you'll need a sponsor to open the account.

What costs will I incur after purchasing?

Operational costs include annual property tax, salaries, property insurance, internet, laundry, cleaning supplies, guest supplies, swimming pool expenses, garden expenses, waste & removal, repairs & maintenance, electricity, and water supplies.

Does my villa come with any guarantees?

We guarantee homes against major construction defects for one year, excluding force majeure or natural events. For home insurance, our partners like Zurich Insurance cover theft, fire, natural disasters, etc (Home insurance is an additional option).

What are the notary fees?

Notary fees for land transactions are typically 1-1.5%. We offer a fixed rate of 0.75%, providing cost transparency and efficiency in your property dealings.

Who is responsible for covering the notary fees in a property transaction?

The buyer assumes the responsibility for paying the notary fees associated with the property purchase.
