Buying property in Bali, Indonesia may seem quite the feat, what with confusing property laws, licenses, titles and bureaucracy that one would have to familiarize oneself with. This is especially true for foreigners but if you think buying property in Indonesia is hard now, it is actually a lot simpler than it was in the 1990s!
Back then, foreigners weren’t allowed to own property at all except buildings with a Strata Title. But then things improved in 2010 and 2015 when foreigners were allowed a long-term lease on a property of up to 70 years.
Today, foreigners can “own” Bali properties with 30-year lease agreements with 20-year extensions. You can also “own” landed houses through long-term leases.
