    Good evening,
    I'm currently in Brasil trying to sale some properties that my family received from an inheritance from a family member that lived in Brazil for over 40 years.
    Neither myself or any other family member lives or reside in Brazil.
    The banks won't allow me to open a bank account unless I have the RNE. I can't get the RNE unless I reside in Brazil. I have a CPF. Without a bank account we can't accept a check 'adminstrativo' from the buyer.
    How should the payment for the sale of the house be processed?
    I was told with an international transfer, ok sure, but how can I make sure that the transfer arrives to destination in our bank without any problem and without the risk that the bank transfer gets cancelled by the buyer once I have signed the paper? It's all very confusing and frustrating to get some proper advice in Brazil.
    I'm sure I'm not the first foreigner to sale a property in Brazil.
    Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
    I wish you all a nice day ahead.

    May be an escow account, from the realtor company or may be from the notary who do the title?
