Today we will talk about the documents necessary for purchasing real estate in Japan.
The only documents required are the notarized affidavit, the officially certified address certificate in Japan. All that is left is to sign the documents prepared by the judicial scrivener. It's very easy and concise.
This proof of address must be a official document and must be AFFIDAVIT notarized at the embassy of the country of nationality or at the notary office. If the lawyer is registered as a notary, the document with the lawyer's certification (Notarization) is valid and the word of Attorney must be included in the signed document.
If you are staying in a country where you do not have nationality, you will need to create a notarized affidavit at the embassy of your country in your country where you are staying.
When you complete the real estate transaction and register the transfer of ownership, judicial scrivener will submit this affidavit to the Regional Legal Affairs Bureau along with other signed documents. The affidavit will be translated into Japanese in advance, and if there is a Kanji (Chinese) display, the Kanji (Chinese) will be registered as it is, and if it is in alphabetical form, it will be registered in Katakana.
The registration of ownership of real estate requires a judicial scrivener to face the buyer and strictly confirm the identity of the buyer. However, it is possible to confirm the identity of the buyer and confirm his / her will through online. Therefore, it is possible to purchase real estate and register ownership even if you do not come to Japan.
