Abstract

Indonesia is Maritime nation. The number of a small island is one of the diversity possessed by Indonesia beside the diversity of culture and ethnicity. Indonesians who live in coastel areas in their daily lives can not be separated from their dependence on coastal resources due to the livelihoods of their inhabitans who depend on the sea. Their livelihood is sourced from the sea, so they choose to live in coastal areas. The potential and diverse natural resources in coastal areas become an attraction for the community to meet their daily needs, so that coastal settlements are formed that vary according to the level of community life. The increasing number of Indonesian people living in coastal areas is their reason to build floating houses in the coastal area where these floating houses are a place to live and gather a family. The house is a place where all family members stay and do activities that become daily routine. Based on the wisdom and customs of the surroundings, the floating houses, which generally belong to fishing communities, were established on their own initiative. So that its establishment is not based on permission from the government, and does not have the basis of rights like houses in general on the mainland according to the Law of the Republic of Indonesia Number 28 Year 2009 concerning Regional Taxes and Regional Levies Article 1 paragraph (39). The existence of a legal vacuum regarding floating houses causes community unrest towards the legitimacy of the floating houses themselves when in fact the indigenous people themselves have built floating houses long before the Basic Agrarian Law was made.
