Title Company

LawOfficeinBrazil is one of the few in Brazil that can provide you with escrow account service and title insurance from the United States for all real estate transactions in Brazil.

Real estate transactions are governed by numerous federal statutes and varying state statutes and common laws that address a wide variety of legal issues related to acquiring, financing, developing, managing, constructing, leasing and selling commercial and residential real property. Buying and selling real estate is generally more complicated than buying or selling expensive goods, such as a car or a boat. With real estate, many different people can have an interest in the same property, tax consequences are more complicated, and possession is not necessarily indicative of ownership. An experienced real estate attorney can help you sort through all of the difficult decisions and negotiations involved in real estate transactions.
