Rental Contracts for Monthly Villa Rentals in Bali3 June 2021 by Ade
Bali is one of the most beautiful, yet affordable destinations in Southeast Asia. Who wouldn’t want to spend a few months at a time in Bali to experience everything that the island has to offer? If this is part of your plan, then you’d be happy to know that there are beautiful luxury villas available for a monthly rent that would make the perfect holiday home! With such a wide range of options, you can certainly find a villa that will suit your preference and needs. The first thing that you should know is that price alone shouldn’t be the defining factor when it comes to choosing a private monthly villa for rent. Other factors to consider would include location, service, amenities, maintenance, security, and/or staff. Be aware that you could also be overpaying for services or features that aren’t exactly part of your agreement and/or expectations. Consider speaking to your landlord to set up a written rental contract and/or agreement before you proceed. In other parts of the world, a rental contract would potentially protect you as a tenant against an unfair lawsuit; this won’t be its main purpose here in Bali as such disputes rarely occur. The main purpose of an agreement or a contract is to set expectations on both sides, so you are both clear on what the landlord is offering and what you will be receiving. Helping you choose quality monthly villa rentals in Bali Not all landlords will get into the hassle of writing up a legal rental contract. Most landlords are happy with verbal agreements and base their businesses on good faith. However, a written rental contract can protect you from unexpected matters such as renovations, increased monthly rates, maintenance, etc. It is a clear set of guidelines on obligations, responsibilities, and liability on both the tenant and the landlord so that you can be sure of a pleasant, long-term rental experience while you’re here in Bali. Do you have any questions about leasing a villa in Bali? If you have any inquiries about buying or renting a property in Bali, you can come to us for advice. Contact Bali Coconut Living.
Applying for a Foreign Mortgage for a Bali House18 May 2021 by Ade
Indonesia’s constitution has made it impossible for foreigners (even those who hold a KITAS) to own land with the strongest title deed possible - the Freehold Title, or Hak Milik. This means that foreign investors are faced with a limited number of options when it comes to obtaining funds to invest in assets in Indonesia. This includes property investments. You may have heard that it is now possible for foreigners to establish a business out of leasehold villas in Bali or elsewhere in Indonesia. To do this, a foreigner must form a legal entity called a PMA, a foreign-owned company with a minimum total equity of 2.5 billion rupiah to register. This is the same amount that is needed to build a typical minimalist villa here in Bali. The foreigner would also need a Pondok Wisata license alongside a PMA in order to legally operate the villa as a business. Is it possible to get a business loan for a property investment in Indonesia? We must inform you beforehand that regulations can change at any time, and that this is not in any way, legal advice that can guarantee the safety of your investment. It would be difficult to find banks or any financial institutions that would issue a mortgage (called KPR) directly to foreign investors. The reason behind this is that foreigners will never own the property that they purchase (without the Hak Milik freehold title), so banks cannot use that property as collateral. However, according to many sources, it is possible for a legal entity PMA to get a loan for a property (or a “mortgage”) through third-party organizations that work together with banks. One example would be Asia Property Finance Management, a financial establishment that can arrange for Indonesian Property Loan (IPL) on behalf of foreign-owned legal entities. Back to you — why do you want to invest? If you are a foreigner, the stringent regulations that foreigners need to follow may discourage you to achieve your financial goals here in Bali. However, it is important to always remember exactly why you want to invest in a property in Bali. There may be easier ways to achieve your goals. Don’t hesitate to contact Bali Coconut Living for some advice on how property financing works in Indonesia.
Holiday Rental License (Pondok Wisata) for Leasehold Villas11 May 2021 by Ade
As more and more people receive their COVID-19 vaccinations, there are high hopes that we will all reach herd immunity, allowing us all to resume normal economic activities sooner than later. It is estimated that tourism will return to normal in Bali by mid-2021 - which is good news for both holidaymakers and business owners alike. In the meantime, if you are planning to capture this eventual influx of tourism, you should get your leasehold villas in order! To be on the safe side of the law, make sure that you have a valid Bali holiday rental license for your leasehold villa. This holiday rental license is called Pondok Wisata, which roughly translates to Tourism Lodge. How to apply for a Pondok Wisata License? It is easy enough if you are an Indonesian citizen. Simply visit the official website of the national small and medium businesses association and submit your application online, or liaise with a representative of the city in which your villa is located. If you are a foreigner, you would first need to set up a foreign business license called the PMA as a Villa Management business. Once that is set up, you can then request a Pondok Wisata license. How long does the Pondok Wisata license last? The Pondok Wisata license is valid for a duration of 5 years. Thereafter, you will need to extend it for another 5 years, and so on and so forth. This is typical for assets that are taxable, such as transportation (new license plates are issued every 5 years). There are tax requirements for all villa rentals in Indonesia, however, tax collection periods can vary in each location — depending on the law of your district or town, you either pay a monthly or yearly tax. It is important that you set aside some funds as tax payments are mandatory even if your villa isn’t generating income at any particular moment in time. Need legal advice on Pondok Wisata? We can give you some guidance. Bali Coconut Living is not just a property service and villa rental agency. We also provide consultation services for anyone looking for clarification and advice on anything property-related in Bali. Contact us today and let us help you get organized!

Loft Apartments for Long Term Rentals in Bali28 April 2021 by Ade
Most people don’t realize that their lifestyles can be affected by the style of their homes. At least, the apartment-style villas of Menara Loft Apartment would give you a fresh, new perspective of what could be possible while staying in a Bali long-term villa. A studio apartment for long term rental in Bali In a post last month, we covered Leo Apartments in east Kerobokan, a beautiful complex comprising several 2-story apartment units and a shared pool — a typical Balinese apartment usually looks like this. But Menara Loft Apartment is different. Nestled on 120 square meters of land, this exclusive unit is a modern home with its own pool and a private garden patio. The villa makes use of loft architecture to create additional space for a ‘bedroom’, which is fitted over the dining room, and by doing so, creating a sense of openness and space. In fact, as the name suggests, Menara Loft Apartment does feel like it has plenty of breathing room, both indoors and outdoors. The perfect home for couples When it rains, the light tapping of the raindrops echoing against the solid wood board ceiling will lull you into a state of relaxation and peace as you cozy up with your partner in the loft-style bedroom. It is technically not a bedroom — we would classify the entire home as a studio apartment with a villa setting. Absolutely perfect for child-free couples, this loft-style studio apartment is the ideal monthly rental home that provides a fantastic living space at an affordable monthly rate. Incredibly close to the beach The added benefits of Menara Loft Apartment to your modern lifestyle do not stop there. How would you like to go on a routine walk to the beach with your partner? No plans, no preparations, just a spontaneous walk to Berawa beach — which would take you no more than 20 minutes to reach on foot (5 minutes with a scooter)! Would you like to know more about this loft apartment? Call us at +62 361 847 6727 (Bali Coconut Living) and we’ll show you around the place.
