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 simply has no ideas the Miami violations exist. Be that as it may, you certainly do not want to purchase a home and then find out about potentially serious problems. We can remove all doubt, ensuring that your home is safe before you buy it! Keep in mind that in most cases, you are out of luck if you buy a house with Miami building or zoning violations. These types of problems are attached to the property; once you sign on the dotted line, you likely have little or no claim on the former owner to correct the problem. Fixing the Miami code violations, and the expense and hassle that process involves, will then be up to you. If you detect the problem before finalizing the purchase of the house, however, you can have the owner correct the problem at their expense before you buy. The prevalence of Miami building and zoning violations in this part of Florida is primarily due to the fact that many remodels are done without proper permits. Even homes that are built with all permits in order may sometimes never be properly inspected, leading to further problems.

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

Am I responsible for unpermitted work done by the previous homeowner?
YES! The Miami building code’s primary purpose is Life Safety of the owner and the public so building code violations in Miami must be corrected regardless of who performed or contracted the work. Even though the Miami Building Department may not have violations on file they may be cited upon inspection of sale or Certificate of Occupancy with the current owner becoming immediately responsible for the code violations.
What are Miami Building and Zoning Violations?
A wide variety of different issues can be classified as Miami code violations, from construction without the proper permits to a fence being too high in a residential neighborhood.
