Due to the complexity of land law in Indonesia and the significance of land matters in the real property and construction businesses, HPRP has found clients’ needs are best served by forming a specialist group in this area of expertise, covering:
- advice and representation from the due diligence examination on existing rights over land;
- dealings with the land registry and other government agencies;
- negotiating with existing land owners, relevant tax issues, land security matters;
- transfers of rights over land and building acquisition documentation, negotiating leases;
- structuring/cooperation schemes and/or preparing legal documentation on construction based projects such as build-operate-transfer (BOT), joint operation arrangement and/or consortium arrangements.
The Firm has assisted foreign and domestic companies, consortia (including state/regional owned enterprises (BUMN/BUMD) and local government) and/or individuals acting as sellers, buyers, lessors, lessees, mortgagors, mortgagees, land owners, project owners, developers, main contractors, sub-contractors, and any other relevant parties in the business.
By the nature of Indonesian land law, different factors come into play with the use of land for manufacturing, commercial development, or agribusiness; and the members of the Firm within this practice group have extensive experience of all these sectors.
