INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Divorce must be the hardest thing experienced by a couple. As happened to the domestic capital of the former governor of Basuki Tjahaja Purnama alias Ahok and his wife, Veronica Tan. On Friday, January 5 yesterday, Ahok sent a letter of divorce and child custody request to North Jakarta District Court. It is not known what the exact reason Ahok Veronica divorce lawsuit.

In the middle of the process, the divided of property becomes one of the things that must be taken care of. In general, the house becomes the greatest asset of a married couple. Any option is faced with the sale or transfer of ownership belongs to one party.

While no absolute solution has been found to divide the estate property when divorce occurs, both can choose several methods available.

First Option, selling and sharing the proceeds

Selling houses and sharing the results is the way most couples choose to divorce. Many financial planners advise their clients to sell the house and share the property fairly. This way looks simple and there is no debt between the two parties.

But there are some shortcomings of this method. The first condition, if in a hurry to sell the house, especially in the condition of the still unhealthy property market, worried could be a loss of selling price.

In the midst of this condition, it is advisable to rent the house and share the profit.

The second condition, maybe the house has become a safe and comfortable living environment for children. As parents, it would be hard to invite them to move to a new dwelling. But the following alternative way might help.

Second Option, buy the house

Before making a decision to stay in the house by buying some home value, think rationally and professionally in accepting the selling price to be determined.

Third option, purchase by installments

This method can be selected if the husband or wife still want to stay in the house while paying mortgage each month, because not have enough money to pay hard cash.

Although it looks simple, but this way will spend a long time until finally the division of the house can be done fairly for both parties.

If forced to choose this way, it's good to do legally written agreement in order to avoid disputes in the future.

The fourth option, divided literally

For large homes, this is the simplest, yet hard-to-live way. That is to divide the building into two parts and let the couples who have divorced live side by side.

If the breakup is going smoothly this might be the right solution. But not infrequently these neighboring conditions present a new problem in the future.

Last option, grant to child

To avoid prolonged conflict, there are also divorced couples who want the house certificate behind the name to be their child's. Actually this can be done, because minors can also receive the right to revert the name of the certificate.

However, minors can not perform legal acts, such as signing a sale and purchase documents and so on. If a legal act should be done, it can be done by the guardian.

Please note, behind the name of the certificate to the child can not be done with a will, as long as the concerned (parent) is alive. The transfer of rights to a child can be done by grant.
