    Friend,

    Non Indos are allowed to buy HOUSES value over 180 million Rupiah, not rukos( shop houses). Alternatively, you can go to the Notaris to sign an agreement that YOU HAVE the RIGHT TO SELL ONLY, that will help you secure the land.

    Notaris is equvilant of a lawyer that specialise in land issues. The laws here are different from singapore. they are based on Dutch laws.

    If you have a land title under your name, you have KEEP YOUR TITLE PROPERLY. There is no single govenment agency that keep all records. It is all with notaris. And there are many of them all over the country.

    If you lost it, you have to make a police report and get it replaced.

    There are cases where there are 2 land titles to the same piece of land. Be very sure and check properly before buying. Usually, that arise from family issues, and all the person holding the land or immediate family members have to agree to it too.

    The process of buying and getting the final title deed can be very tidious too. Not one way ticket like singapore. You have to go to different departments and get all other documentations and wait and wait.

    Yes, you got to get it done asap, for your own safety.
    The "owner" can go to the police and make a report that he "lost" the documents and get a report to make a new copy. That will make the copy you hold in your hands useless. And he can sell the land with that copy. When you want o sell next time, you will have lots of problems. That is why the documents which state that only you have the right to SELL THE LAND must be made. And if possible, indicate that ANY CHANGE, BE IT LOST OF DOCUMENTS, OR WHAT SO EVER, YOU NEED TO BE NOTIFIED. Of cos, you pay for the postage and others for the notification.

    When you sign the documents, you go to a nortaris. Look at your papers, it will indicate which notaris the documents are made. Go back to that one. All the records are there.

    You can buy land, but only certain types. The laws in indonesia is confusing and tedious. Even I myself cannot figure most of them out. Usually, I seek out advice and get proper documentation before commiting to buying.

    Example a house with 2 rooms cost ard $18K-23k,a 2nd car cost ard $10k n e petrol there is ard 90 cents per litre.You can get a full meal under $2 if not too choosy.
    =======

    is the house freehold ? which property developer can buy from ? 20K for a house , then the minister one year can own entire condo block.

    But doing small business in Medan...safe or not? Dont trust those Non-Chinese Indon.

    As for buying properties, the occasional earthquake/tsunami over at Sumatra kind of pissed me off. :(
