Building and Zoning Violations 101
Homes in Miami with building or zoning violations are much more common than you might guess. This does not necessarily mean that a person trying to sell such a house is unscrupulous or dishonest – in many cases, the seller or owner of the property has no idea that these violations even exist. No one wants to purchase a home or property to then find out that it has a trail of existing code violations, unclosed permits and many more serious problems. At Fix My Code Violation, we remove all doubt and unsure you, the buyer, that your property is safe for purchase!

When buying a home or property, the amount of paperwork and due diligence is overwhelming. Imagine also adding building and zoning issues to that process. Once you purchase a property with code violations or open permits, these problems are attached to the property and you likely have little or no claim on the former owner to correct the problem. Having to fix these issues and bring your property up to code is now your full and sole responsibility; however, if you detect the code violation problems before you sign on the dotted line, you can have the owner correct the problem at their expense before you buy.

Most code violations we encounter are due to remodels done without proper permits. Even homes that have been built with all permits in order are sometimes not properly inspected, leading to hidden problems that later resurface in a negative manner, which is why we always recommend, a full detailed inspection before closing on your purchase.

Don’t let the process get in the way of your project!
