    Regulation Revised on Foreigners Residential Ownership in Indonesia


    BANDUNG-Government urged to revise the rules of strangers / foreigners (WNA) can have a residential or a residential house in Indonesia, as contained in the Government Regulation (PP) No. 103/2015. Thus, it is expressed by House of Representatives Commission V Members Sigit Sosiantomo, in a release received by jabarprov.go.id, Friday (23/12).
    "Commission V of the House of Representatives questioned the legal basis for the establishment of Law. We also remind the government that the substance of the rules on property ownership by foreigners does not violate the law, "said Sigit.
    It is Known, Law No. 103 of 2015 regulates Housing or Residential Ownership by Foreigners Domiciled in Indonesia. Beleid / wisdom stipulates that foreign nationals are entitled to have a right to use the property in Indonesia for 30 years which can be extended for 20 years, and an additional 30 years.
    In fact, the existing rules are derivatives, namely the Regulation of the Minister of Agrarian and Spatial Planning (ATR) / Head of National Land Agency (BPN) No. 13 of 2016.
    On the other hand, Sigit said that the rule or umbrella law regarding residence Foreigners in Indonesia by two Acts (Act), Law No. 1 of 2011 on Housing and Region Settlements (PKP) and Act No. 20 of 2011 on the Flats ( towers) are not mandated regulation about property ownership.
    However, added Sigit, the Law No. 1 of 2011 only set the Right to Use of Foreigners to Residential or Dwelling House, not Ownership right. It was as contained in Article 52 of Law No. 1 of 2011, and the elucidation of Article 2 Letter C.
    "PKP Act and the flats did not mandate creation of PP concerning property ownership. Then what is legal basis for opening the tap for foreigners to own property in Indonesia?. On the other hand, the agrarian law we only provide the right ownership in form of rights to use. The government should not violate the law, "said the People's Representative of PKS Electoral District of Surabaya and Sidoarjo.
    Sigit continues with their property ownership for foreigners will have a negative impact, namely the difficulty of Indonesian society in lower classes to get home. If foreigners can own property in Indonesia, the impact is the rising price of land and buildings.
    "It's obviously going to impact on increasingly decreasing ability of low-income communities (MBR) to purchase the property. This policy is counter productive to the Act PKP and flats which mandates the government to provide facilities to the MBR to get home because it is the right of every citizen of Indonesia (citizen), "said Sigit
    Other impacts, it could be the entrance of control over parts of the Unitary Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) by foreigners. Therefore, the Government should explain in detail related to property ownership by foreigners. The policy is very important, strategic and far-reaching for the life of the nation.
    "If the government can not provide an explanation or just silent, then we are House of Representatives, said Sigit will apply a right to ask the President as head of the government", he concluded. (NR)
