What do I need to know when buying property in Japan?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats what advice they would give a foreigner before buying a property in Japan, they said...

"When buying property in Japan, it is important to understand the legal process and the associated costs. It is also important to research the local area and the property itself, including any potential risks or liabilities. It is also important to be aware of the tax implications of buying property in Japan, as well as any restrictions on foreign ownership. It is also important to be aware of the different types of property available, such as residential, commercial, and industrial. Finally, it is important to work with a qualified real estate agent or lawyer to ensure that the purchase process is completed correctly," commented one expat who made the move to Japan.
