Pay Property Registration & Taxes in Brazil

Costs charged by the registration office will cover government fees and taxes, as well the fees charged by the registration office itself (which is a mixed entity – private but operating based on a mandate by the government).

Total costs may range from 5% to 10% of the total property value. Realtor may provide an estimate of the cost, but usually only the registration office will provide an exact figure. The registration office will won’t bother calculating the exact amounts until seller and buyer confirm that they will proceed with the registration. Most registration offices will provide you with a ballpark number for the costs. At the day of the closing they may ask you for more money if what you paid wasn’t enough, or refund you in case you paid more.

Timeline: registration offices will usually ask you for the required fees and taxes in a lump sum. On the closing date, they should provide you with a breakdown of how the money you paid was allocated to the taxes, fees, expenses, etc.
