Required items and fees upon settlement
Tax payable by land and building owners. Every January 1st that has a real estate acquired in record will need to pay the 1 year whole tax from June , within 4 installment.
If you acquired a property by January 2nd, ther first payment of the fixed asset tax will be to the following year.
Tax payable on registration of ownership, or registration of transfer, when building on or selling land or buildings, plus payment to the judicial scrivener carrying out the registration procedure.
This is a local tax levied by the prefectural government when real estate is acquired by sale, purchase, or gift, or when it is newly built or expanded.
Payment of real estate acquisition tax is made at a financial institution using a “tax notice” that is sent from the prefecture within 6 to 18 months after the acquisition. The due date differs depending on each prefecture.
Regardless of whether it is a single-family home or a condominium, if you purchase a new building with a construction cost of 20 million yen or less, you will not be charged real estate acquisition tax on the building portion.
This is α very complicated matter , we fully explain to all of our clients if this is applicable and ways to cut some costs on acquisition process.
There are three main types of insurance for houses.
Fire insurance is the basic type of insurance for houses, and there are two additional types of insurance that can be added to it: home contents (Furniture & Appliances etc.) insurance and earthquake insurance. Fire insurance has a wide range of coverage and is an insurance with great benefits.
For this reason, it is almost mandatory to purchase fire insurance when buying a house , acquiring a real estate. However, the insurance covers only the building.
Fire insurance covers more than just fire.
Although it is called “fire insurance,” it does not only cover fire. There are five main types of coverage: fire, lightning, explosion, wind, hail, snow, water, theft, water damage, and material damages.
However, “theft/water leakage” and “material damage” etc. may be optional in some comprehensive fire insurance policies. Some insurance policies separate these items into “home material insurance,”(Furniture & Appliances etc.) so you need to be aware that fire insurance alone may not cover these items.
Document issued within seven days by the building official, or equivalent, once notification of completion has been submitted by the owner and a final inspection has been carried out to confirm that construction complies with the Building Standards Act. The owner is not permitted to use the building, or allow others to use the building, until a certificate of completion has been issued, as a rule.
