Frequently Asked Questions

Can foreigners own property in Indonesia?
  • Yes, foreigners can legally and safely buy property in Bali, Indonesia.

  • There are two main ways this can be done, Freehold (Hak Milik) and Leasehold (Hak Sewa).

What is the difference between Freehold and Leasehold?


  • It means that you own the land indefinitely. This option is exclusively available for Indonesian citizens, so it is not the most common option for international buyers and investment villas. 


  • It is available to both Indonesians and foreigners, it is like a freehold in many ways, but as a foreigner, you only hold the rights to the land for an agreed time frame. Importantly, international buyers will have their name on the lease and a legal right to use the land. 

  • Typically, the land is initially leased for 25-30 years and can be extended by purchasing additional years from the freehold owner.

  • Leasing land in Indonesia is much cheaper than buying a freehold. This makes leaseholds the most popular form of ownership among foreigners. It is an attractive option for investors providing higher returns while having the most benefits of a freehold title.
