Power of Attorney for Property Transaction in Brazil

Have our Attorneys Attending Closing on Your Behalf

Closing is probably the single most important moment in property acquisition in Brazil. While some more experienced buyers may decide to attend close by themselves, the vast majority of foreign buyers will choose to have an attorney attending the closing. Closings involve multiple legal documents and a large number of interactions between the parties and the registration office ("cartório").

Why We Don't Assist With Power of Attorneys to Third Parties

We do not draft a power of attorney assigned to third parties. A proper closing requires a reasonable understanding of how real estate and registration law works in Brazil. The chances of a friend or family member of yours committing costly mistakes are substantial. We don't want you to get in trouble and we don't want to get in trouble ourselves by allowing you to make the poor choice of assigning a power of attorney to a layperson.
