The general procedure for purchase of property in Japan

The first step when an individual or a company is purchasing a property in Japan is to look for “property for sale”. Normally, an individual or a company looking to purchase a property contacts a real estate agent, which would then introduce and explain about different properties.

The next step would be for the purchaser to conduct a thorough research. Both parties would then engage in a more detailed negotiation, which includes setting the financial scheme of purchase.

Once the terms and conditions are determined, the purchaser will inform the seller his/her intent of purchase. Then the purchaser and seller will sign off on the “Contract for Sale and Purchase of Property” with all the terms and conditions both parties agreed on. Prior to concluding the contract for sale, the real estate agent will give an explanation on the “Explanation of Important Matters” with the details of the said property to the purchaser based on the “Building Lots and Buildings Transaction Business act”.

After the contract for sale has been concluded, the sales value will be settled and the property will be handed over and registered to the new owner.
