Here are some common pitfalls when it comes to land purchasing in Bali

All land in Bali is subject to zoning law which regulates the kind of activities and development that you can do on it. The zones that you will commonly encounter are Pemukiman (residential), Pariwisata (touristic), Pemerintah (governmental), and Pertanian (agriculture, commonly referred to as green zone). A reminder you might want to note, it is not possible to obtain building permits for land located in a green zone.
 Keep in mind that the zoning of a given area can change from time to time, and the best way to check it is to contact the local government office of the area.

This includes drawing up contracts, reviewing title deeds, and making sure the transaction complies with all relevant laws and regulations, as we have mentioned in the previous list.
