That's not really what a brf is. It is not a separate entity from which you rent an apartment, although it may feel that way. A brf is owned by its members. The brf is run by its members. In order for the brf to run well, many members need to contribute by being on the committee or doing stuff to keep things running smoothly.

So it is in everyone's best interest that everyones helps out.

It is often paid to the real estate agent, if so it is kept there until you are approved by the BRF.
