Our CEO and Managing Partner, Eddy Leks wrote an opinion in The Jakarta Post, 6 December 2016, titled “Road to Legal Certainty Over Land Acquisition”.
The Agrarian Law of 1960, as a fundamental land law in Indonesia, has regulated land registration, including registration of right to land and the issuance of certificates of right to land, which are considered strong evidence of ownership. This fundamental provision means that registration of right to land and certificates of land are not considered absolute evidence, which also means ownership can still be nullified. The provision for land registration under the Agrarian Law created legal issues for all buyers of land or real estate. On one hand, this provision gives an opportunity for the true owner to file a claim or objection with regards to the land registration and related certificates of land.
