Hi members,
A friend selling her indonesian house can not return to Indonesia right now but her house is ready to be transferred to new owner.
The notaries refuses to accept a Surat Kuasa from overseas for me to Sign the transaction.
Any suggestions how to get past this?

Courier the forms overseas for her to sign. Might have to be witnessed by a lawyer/ Indonesian consulate

What was the reason the notary refused? Was the power of attorney legalized properly? Documents that are issued abroad and have to be used in Indonesia, must go through a procedure which contains a legalization by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the foreign country and then the KBRI (Representative of the Republic of Indonesia abroad).

Refusal was that she must be her to have it signed. Not even her sister who is in Jkt could be appointed.
I guess the notaries is right but should have mentioned the requirement to have the justice and foreign ministerial departments sign off on certain forms and the KBRI.
Are there specific forms to use for each overseas step?

The thing is that every country is different; many have a 'consular service desk' at their Ministry of Foreign Affairs which is very efficient and fast. But then (practically always) the document needs to be in the local language and translated by a certified translator. Normally you'll get a sticker or stamp on the documents.

If you want to pursue this, make sure the Indonesian notary and KBRI in that country agree and have them communicate their requirements first to avoid surprises!
