    Dee dee,
    Olis query is a different issue altogether.My understanding is that provided the payment is REGISTERED with the central bank in Brazil,it does not necessarily have to be physically paid in there (for ease of repatriation of funds).Your solicitor should deal with this as part of their fee.

    wolfang do you mean it is legal to pay in europe in euros and easy to get the money back at a later stage if i intend to re-sell and rapatriate the cash? in that case can i sell in euros in europe? i will also double check with local lawyers
    thanks for your support

    :) :) Hi all,

    Some info on money transfers is either in " GRAND NATAL GOLF- LAST DAY AT PRE-RELEASE PRICES" or its in " BRAZIL OWNERS" one!

    Briefly: it has been explained that the money goes to GS in spain in eiros then the developers transfer the money from their to brazil bank in reals if I remeber rightly??

    See ya D :)

    thanks D!
    so in that case i understand it is a legal way to buy in euros in europe
    the only concern is afterwards for re-sale
    but i believe there is always a way!
    have a nice day:)

    Hi, sorry for the delay.

    Olicombet - That money transfer process is recommedend to avoid future problems when you sell the property and need to transfer funds out of Brazil. One specific risk is you have to pay additional fees and tax. It is possible to pay abroad and re-sell abroad too but you will need to deal with a complex structure of Off-Shore and Holding companies. Please, check with your lawyer.

    Wolfgand - The record is necessary when the money enter itself into the country.

    Deedee - Yes, that is a kind of complex structure.

    ALL - It is wise to appoint a lawyer who will carry out all necessary checks on the property or land in Brazil and fulfill the legal requirements of the sale.

    Update lawyers Brazil.

    Hi All,
    For those that have yet to engage a solicitor another option has emerged-a company called Law office in Brazil.
    A colleague of mine has used them previously and was very complimentary.Whilst i have not used them personally, i know that a number of people on this forum have made contact with Jose Santiago (who was the guy my colleage used) and initial feedback has been very favourable both in terms of quick response and a very competitive price.Apparently there are significant savings to be made over Manzanares.Too late for me personally as i have already committed myself but hopefully this info will be useful to all those still looking.:)

    I understand you will be fine if you are sending the money directly to the developer as they will tell the Brazilian gov. that they have received the money so title can be handed over.

    If the developer is in Brazil then payment must go there.

    Hi Marcelo,

    Thanks for the info. I have just received a contract for some beachfront property I am buying in Canoa Quebrada. I wanted to check what is customary to include in the contract. There is no map of the property or even description of its size (just reference to plot number). This does not strike me as normal. Your thoughts?

    Law Office in Brazil

    Thanks Wolgang. Do you have a website as a search in google results in various combinations of the title "Law office in Brazil." I believe it is this one: law office but wanted to be sure.

    lawyer foir our clients.

    We recommend an excellent legal firm based in Brazil with extensive knowledge of Brazilian real estate. We have negotiated an excellent deal for our clients with this company. Of course, purchasers can use a lawyer of their choice but we strongly recommend that they ensure they have an excellent understanding of Brazilian Real Estate.

    It is important also to take care about taxes.
    Usually, Brazilian real estate attorneys have no idea about international tax planning and investment vehicles. It is advisable to hire reputable law firms if you plan to make a material investment in Brazil. There are some international law firms that have affiliated firms in Brazil. Very responsive and that understand cross boarder investments. They are usually located in Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. Just check cross boarder real estate investments in Brazil in google or any other search machine at the web.

    There are also many "international" law firms, like I have seen quoted on this forum, who trade on their name, but have to subcontract the actual work to another brasilian lawyer, and therefore the client gets the international fees for a local lawyer service!
