Prior to lot subdivision completion and transfer of land titles, KABA® Niseko’s Property Management Company will be appointed as “Property Manager” of the estate, its common area infrastructure, and all individual lots (developed or otherwise). Every lot/villa Owner must join the KABA® Niseko Estate Association and will be subject to its rules and regulations.
The Property Manager will charge a basic JPY 20,000 per month for undeveloped lots and JPY 100,000 per month for each developed lot to cover infrastructure and service costs (e.g. road maintenance, public area snow clearance, onsen infrastructure). These Common Area Maintenance (“CAM”) fees will be billed quarterly with each Owner contributing an initial amount into their house Account (e.g. one year’s CAM fee). Homeowners may additionally have direct costs associated with their homes (e.g. utilities, housekeeping, snow clearance within your grounds, etc.), for which an administrative surcharge fee may apply (rate to be determined). Each house Account should at all times maintain a required minimum reserve balance.
Unlike a typical hotel branded residences program, 65% of gross rooms revenue goes to the Owner with the remaining 35% going to the Property Manager. Owners are restricted from letting out their villas themselves as that is not legally allowed in Japan. Owners may only appoint Property Manager for villa lettings.
Yes, you are free to use your own architect as long as the design conforms to KABA® Niseko’s Design Guidelines (available upon request). All builds are subject to local Kutchan regulations as well as the Property Manager’s approval (to comply with Design Guidelines and avoid potential conflicts with neighbours). Please note that the Design Guidelines require each villa to be built to hotel standards as each villa will receive its own hotel license, whether or not it joins the Villa Rental Program. This hotel license helps to retain future value in your home. Privately-owned forest areas may not be built upon. We are happy to provide guidance on designing and building your house.
Yes, all sales and resales are subject to the same Design Guidelines to create a cohesive estate and ensure long term value for all Owners.
Costs will naturally vary due to design, size, materials, and finishes but in general an estimate of JPY 400-700,000 per sqm (USD 4-7,000 per sqm) may suffice for medium to high end builds. Designs are subject to the KABA® Niseko Design Guidelines.
Whilst there are no specific time restrictions, an Owner’s monthly CAM fees on undeveloped lots may rise to equal that of developed lots if Owners do not initiate builds within 5 years of lot purchase.
Yes, every lot has a connection point to KABA’s central onsen supply system but due to ever changing local regulations on supply and flow, connection is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Yes, the Property Manager can be hired as a project manager to help deliver a turn-key custom villa.
Owners will be exclusively offered membership at the upcoming Weiss Hotel (onsen & spa access, gym, ski rentals, preferred rates on rooms & restaurants, shuttle services to nearby ski fields). Both Weiss & Hanazono ski fields lie only 3 minutes away.
If you participate in the Villa Rental Program, we shall be happy to extend our services to your guests. Some minimum fees may apply to cover costs of service.
