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. Electrical, plumbing, structural and grading problems, just to name a few, can all be Miami code violations. Both commercial and residential buildings can have Miami code violations; our job is to properly identify them and then present a resolution that works for you.
Code Violations Defined
What are Miami Building and Zoning Violations?
Illegal Additions – Overview
Before you buy a property in Miami, it is essential that you have an Illegal Additions Inspection performed. Many individuals shopping for a new home have no idea that an illegal addition is an open Miami building permit violation. Insurance companies, lending institutions and many other organizations closely examine all aspects of a property and its title before working with you. For that reason, illegal additions can become a massive headache. Our job is to resolve the issue before it reaches that point.

Unsafe Structures – What is an Unsafe Structure?
Quite a few different factors can contribute to determining whether a structure must be classified as unsafe. Properties that have been foreclosed upon tend to be at a particularly high risk of being unsafe. From plumbing and water lines to electrical wires and loadbearing walls, our licensed team will carefully check the building from foundation to roof. You will receive a detailed written report after the inspection that is admissible evidence in all courts of law.
Unsafe Structures – Unsafe Structures are Dangerous
Unsafe structures may not look obviously dangerous to the untrained eye, but that does not change the fact that they can be a major hazard to people living or working in them. It is not worth taking chances; after all, this is an even more important issue than the simple legal requirements to comply with area building codes. If you even suspect that your home or other building is unsafe, call us today.
This violation refers to a Miami permit being issued, but then expiring due to 180 days of inactivity. In most cases, this means that the structure never receives a final inspection. This was a common issue after Hurricane Andrew due to a lack of sufficient qualified inspectors, something property owners obviously could not control. Nonetheless, the fault in this situation still rests with the property owner.
Work Without Miami Permit
As you can probably guess, this code violation simply refers to some type of improvement or change being made to a property without a proper Miami permit.
Finally, this violation is used to designate a property that could somehow cause harm to people. It is most common in buildings that were abandoned or somehow damaged, such as in a fire or natural disaster.
