Investment procedure in Japan - first thing first to know
Step 1 - Check the properties available for sale.
Check out property information through the websites, e-mail news, newspaper etc. provided by the qualified real estate agencies and find out the interesting properties for you.
Step 2 - Contact the real estate agencies.
Make sure with the agents about the properties you are interested in to get more detailed information about the properties, investment details, and purchasing process.
Step 3 - Pay the holding deposit. (If necessary)
If necessary, pay the refundable holding deposit to keep the property you are interested in off the market for some specific period to give you some more time to make a decision.
Step 4 - Find your solicitor to check the contract.
You can ask the real estate agent to find out your solicitor if you do not have. It is extremely important to check the legal documents and contracts with your solicitor.
We introduce some English speaking solicitor to work for you.
Step 5 - Sign the sale contract and the other required documents.
If the properties you would like to purchase is new developments, you cannot exchange the sales contract until the development approval is granted.
Step 6 - Pay the deposit. (usually 5% to 10% depending on the type of the property)
Deposits are required after signing the contracts. Deposits are transferred to the vendor, and the deadline for complete settlement is fixed. You usually are given the enough time to organise your finance. Make sure about the construction schedule and progression reports. (in case of new developments)
Step 7 - Proceed registration of title and settlement.
Once the building is complete (in case of new developments), registration of the property will be taken care of by your agent. Normally, settlement balance should be paid to the trust account of your agent.

Q.) What is the building regulations ? - height & sizes
A.) As follows

- Building Area Size Regulations -
There are "Building to Land ratio" and "Floor to Land ratio" in each zones and areas differently.
ex. If the Building to Land ratio is 60%, and the Floor to Land ratio is 200%, 2,000 sq m sized land could build the building on the area size within 1,200 sq m and the total floor area must be with in 4,000 sq m.

- Building Height Regulations -
It depends on the setback from the road, which usually allows two to three story building to be built, although each property's height regulation is different, and best to make sure with the construction companies.
If the building on the land is heigher than 10m, the shadow sizes and how they moves during the daytime on its neighbors are related as well.

Q.) What is Innkeeper's License ?
A.) In Japan, most houses and apartments are suitable for long-term rentals without special license. However, for short-term rentals like holiday house rentals, an Innkeeper's License is necessary as the property is recognised as a "hotel" ("accommodation") under Japanese law. If the building was originally designated as a residential property at construction, it will need to be changed to a hotel in order to receive the license. This involves an inspection by the fire department to ensure that the property conforms to the necessary standards (such as fireproof carpets, exit lighting, etc.). In addition, the innkeeper's license needs to be registered to someone who resides in Japan.
