Today, we would like to explain the initial investigation when we were asked to sell real estate.
Actually, one owner contacted us today and asked us to sell the detached house. Therefore, we would like to explain what we do as an initial investigation first.
Since it was in the evening when the investigation was begun, we examined the details today within the range which can be investigated on the internet. The first thing we did was to get the land and building registration transcripts. This can be investigated at the legal affairs bureau, but it is also possible to investigate on the internet. Since we are registered as a vendor, we used our login ID and password to search. Land is selected in the order of Kyoto Prefecture, Kyoto City, target ward, town name, and lot number. In the case of a building, the same procedure is used for a building, and in the case of a complete set of information, we will be charged 334 yen per piece of information. The land and building registration transcripts confirms the details of the owner, information about the property and the rights to the property. We then check to see if there are official maps and acreage survey maps of the land. Public maps can be found basically anywhere, but the acreage survey maps are not registered unless they have been surveyed. If there is no information available on the target land, we check the land adjoining the land on the public map in order to see if a survey map on the next land is available. In the case of a building, we also check if the building plan is registered.
The next step is to investigate the type of street access. This can be investigated on the website operated by Kyoto City. This time, we found out that the type of road is Article 42, Paragraph 1, Item 5 of the Law. It is a road that can be rebuilt. Since we didn't have the acreage survey map, we will visit Kyoto City Hall to get information of street width and frontage, as well as a field survey. By the way, since city hall can only be visited during limited hours on weekdays, it is carried over to the following week.
Next, we needed to investigate the zoning of the place where the subject property is located. This is also available on the website operated by Kyoto City. The site has become more and more convenient over the years, and we can check the zoning, building-to-land ratio, floor area ratio, and minimum site area for buildings. It is now possible to look up information on height district, landscape preservation, distant landscape, etc at ont place. The information on outdoor advertising, fire protection zones, built-up urban areas, housing construction control zones, and ruins maps are available on separated sites. Once the above investigation has been completed, the next step is disaster prevention.
For disaster prevention, Kyoto Prefecture has a website dedicated to this topic. We can also check the flood, earthquake, and sediment disaster warning zones. If you would like to find out information about your location, please check the following sites
Multi-Hazard Information Providing System
The above is the main content of the information that can be investigated on the Internet.
In addition, similar to the public maps, but property tax lot reference maps and building agreements can also be researched online. In fact, the above information will be used to survey the Legal Affairs Bureau, City Hall, Waterworks Bureau and the site. It is also possible to obtain information on the buried pipe status of the water supply system and the buried gas pipes via the internet.
In addition, the above is only data information, and we will proceed with the survey including confirmation of boundaries, confirmation of crossing borders, building conditions, etc. This is a job for new buyers to understand the situation, to feel secure, to be satisfied, and to purchase real estate. If you have any questions, please contact us individually.
