Purchasing Property Rights in Japan
We are real estate property sales specialists based in Tokyo with 7 years of experience in this field. Our specialty is brokering property rights for shared ownership especially in the case of deceased estates. As such I am able to introduce to prospective investors, real estate investing opportunities related to deceased estates and inheritance.

Why is this?
In Japan, preparing a will is still not standard practice thus serious problems occur among relatives, in particular siblings, when they inherit property from a deceased parent or relative. Thus when it comes to inheriting property, be it a house, an apartment, a building, or land, the ownership rights need to be divided. However it is often difficult for heirs to reach an amicable agreement.

There are three common approaches to solve this problem.
1. Sell the total land and/or complete property with the consent of all heirs
2. One of the heirs buys the equity of the other heirs
3. Each heir sells their own property right separately

The third solution is still not well known either in Japan or internationally but it is highly likely to become popular among both heirs and investors due to Japan’s ageing population. It is of course too, a very good way to solve inheritance disputes among relatives.
Chuo Property is the only real estate agent that deals with this type of real estate transaction in Central Tokyo and in the Greater Tokyo area. Foreign property investors are also able to buy property rights and the amount of foreign property investors in Japan is rapidly increasing with the increased media attention on Japan due to the upcoming Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
