40 YEAR RECERTIFICATION

What Is A Building Re-certification?

In accordance with the Miami-Dade County Code, Section 8-11 (f)(ii)(1), all buildings, which are 40 years or 10 years after that, from the date the building was given its original Certificate of Occupancy or older must be re-certified by the Building Official. The first Re-certification is mandated when the structure becomes 40 years old and then every 10 years thereafter. Re-certification is due on the anniversary of the original Building or Structure Certificate of Occupancy. Then the Ten(10) year intervals again are based on the year of completion of the building or structure. The exceptions to this ordinance are: single-family residences, duplexes, and minor buildings defined as any occupancy group having an occupant load of 10 or less, having a gross area of 2,000 square feet or less.

Owners responsibility

It is the owner’s responsibility to obtain the 40 Year Recertification and to recertify their building/s every 10 years thereafter regardless of whether they have received a “Notice of Required Recertification” or not. The owner or owner’s representative must hire a Registered Architect and/or a Professional Engineer to perform electrical and structural inspections for the building and submit a completed report of the inspections performed to the Violations Section in the City of Miami Beach, Building Department, for review and approval.

FORTY YEAR RECERTIFICATION INSPECTION DURATION

The time spent inspecting a property depends heavily on 3 points:  Type of structure, Building size, and Existing condition.  Every building inspector has his/her own method and routine they like to use to analyze and document their findings. Therefore we created a time block based on the footprint of a building:

1-5,000 Square-Feet = 1-1.5 Hours

5,000-10,000 Square-Feet = 1.5-2 Hours

10,000-15,000 Square-Feet = 2-3 Hours

Ranges above just estimate duration will vary on a case by case basis.

REPORT 

Our turnaround time for reports is usually about 7-10 working days. Expedited services are available for a fee. Finally, when your report arrives it will be signed and sealed by our Senior engineer who holds an active P.E. license in the State of Florida. It will have instructions on what to do next, depending on the outcome of your inspection result. Whether PASS or FAIL we will help you through the entire process so you’re never without guidance or direction.
