Real Estate Lawsuits in Brazil

Litigation in Brazil

Much of the real estate litigation in Brazil results from a lack of diligence by buyers. Relying on representations of parties interested in the sale (e.g.: seller and realtor), buyers will fail to hire an attorney and get adequate representation through the course of their real estate transactions in Brazil.

Common Situations

Some of the most common situations given rise to real estate litigation involving foreign buyers are:

Dispute among Sellers

Whenever you buy a property in Brazil, the first step will be signing a contract with the seller. While we assume that the sellers will agree to the sale during the contract signing, there is a substantial risk for changes between contract and closing because of the time needed for the foreign buyer to collect all documents required for the closing. In the meantime, sellers may change their minds and, sometimes, refuse to perform and even refund the downpayment.

How we can help

Foreign buyers, when faced with such a situation, may decide to hire a real estate litigator in Brazil to file for a judicial completion of the deal agreed upon.

These are some of the types of cases we handle in Brazil on behalf of foreign citizens who bought the property in Brazil and need to sue the offending party to protect their rights.

Properties with Defective Titles or Deeds

Unfortunately, many sellers in Brazil sell their properties despite title and deed titles. Suing the fraudulent seller may help recover part of the monies paid or potentially enforce the contract agreement.

Prior Claims against Sellers

Some sellers may sell properties while being indebted. This may result in creditors suing to attach the property you purchased to cover the original seller's debt. A strong legal representation may help you keep the property instead of going to the creditors.
