    Why do you need to talk to the state department of highways??

    Well, I can tell you from personal experience, they're appropriating two small pieces of MY land to one day, god only knows when, I doubt I'll be around to see the day, build two public access roads that cut across the middle of my land....effectively dividing it into 3 pieces!

    We have mis understood one another, yes that is the document they gave me, it is from the secretary of infrastructures in ceara. It is a guarantee and proof that the access roads can be built. They also have a letter from an AIPP partner and homebuilder awards in the UK of recomendation.

    I am being very cautious as there is so much going on. Is this the most important document then?

    Manny thanks!!!

    CPF Number

    It is true that CPF number can be applied for and obtained for a paltry fee - if we apply directly to the local Brazilian embassy..

    Rather than the high fee from attorneys it's the lack of any standard when it comes to their quote for getting you one that upsets me...

    Even local Brazilian attorneys quote something like R$ 750/-.

    May be it is worth the slightly longer wait.... in getting it from the embassy.

    I can give you legal details for 500 quid or as low as 100 quid.

    Just message me. Also, 3 to 5 weeks through embassy, 5 days if you use a power of attorney and a good lawyer. So I guess people pay a premium when time is against them.

    You can get the form to fill in and send yourself at the following link to the Receita Federal. You can then check the progress and you can get your number. You will need a brasilian address (possibly a friend or lawyer etc). The card you will need to pick up in Brasil from the Bank of Brasil (or I think the Correos-post office). It will cost R$5.50!

    The English language page is "being updated" and has been like this for a long time, but if you cannot nderstand the Portuguese then cut and paste into a translator like Babelfish to get the gist of it.

    Amazing isn't it Mike?? 500 quid? 1,650 reais for a R5.50 CPF card? Don't know about you all, but for me, that kind of thing shoots someone's credibility right out the window!
