Abstract

The writing of this article aims to outline a legal protection model for consumers buying and selling apartments in Indonesia. Most of the sale and purchase of apartments is done with a pre-project selling system, namely sales before the building is completed. This practice is at high risk for consumers so the law must play a role in providing protection. This article is based on legal research (normative), namely research conducted by studying and analyzing legal materials and problems related to research. The results of the study show that consumers are the parties most often disadvantaged in buying and selling with a pre-project selling system. Consumers who buy apartments have to approve the making of an income agreement known as PPJB (Agreement on the Sale and Purchase). Whereas PPJB is an agreement document that has weaknesses because it does not provide protection to consumers who have weak training power. So that legal protection is needed for consumers by applying the principles of protection based on justice by involving the government directly in regulating and overseeing the sale and purchase of apartments with a pre-project selling system.
