If you are looking to buy a house in Indonesia, you need to familiarise yourself with what is called a sale and purchase agreement.
Because of the rapid population growth and increased demand of housing and real estate, the sale and purchase of property is conducted via the form of reservation even when the house is in the midst of planning to fulfill the demanding crowd.
The sale and purchase of a reserved property which hasn’t been built yet is done through preliminary sale and purchase arrangement.
The Conditional Sale and Purchase Agreement, or PPJB is the agreement that is used for the preliminary sale and purchase of property.
The PPJB is governed under the guidelines from the Minister of Housing and shall be made in accordance with the guidelines which set out in the Minister of Housing, namely Kepmenpera 09/1995. This decree is to secure the interests of both buyers and sellers.
In this article, Cekindo will discuss the items covered under the PPJB. Understand it before you buy a house in Indonesia.
It is the obligation of the buyer to pay the total amount of the property, taxes, notary deed fees, PPJB expenses, registration fee of land’s acquisition levy and land’s building.
If the seller is unable to provide the housing or building to the buyer on the agreed time stated in the PPJB, for each day of delay, the seller will be responsible for a penalty charge of 2% of the total housing price.
On the other hand, if the buyer makes late payment to the seller, for each day of delay, the buyer will be responsible for a penalty charge of 2% of total installments that are due. The seller may also cancel the PPJB due to the late payment.
