Inheritance Deed - Who is it for and what are the benefits

Also known as a “Surat Keterangan Waris” in Indonesian, the inheritance deed outlines the rightful beneficiaries and their respective shares in the inheritance as per the relevant laws and regulations in Indonesia. In property, this deed is mostly used for a foreigner who wants to purchase a property in Indonesia.

Since a foreign individual cannot own a property in Indonesia, the only way to possess one is when they are married to an Indonesian, so that they can buy a property using the name of their spouse.

The Inheritance Deed comes in handy when handling this matter to separate the assets of the spouse from the foreign individual.
