Frequently Asked Questions
What is 40/50 year recertification?
40/50 year recertification is a process that requires buildings in certain counties in Florida, including Miami-Dade County and Broward, to undergo structural and electrical inspections every 10 years after they have reached 40 years of age.
What buildings are subject to 40/50 year recertification?
The 40/50 year recertification applies to buildings in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties that are 40 years or older, with the exception of single-family homes, duplexes, schools, government buildings, and buildings under a certain size limit.
How does 40/50 year recertification work?
The process of 40/50 year recertification Miami Dade can be divided into 5 simple steps:
- The building owner (you) receives a notice from the county or city code compliance department informing you that your building is due for recertification.
- You then hire a qualified professional engineer or architect to inspect your property and provide a sealed Building Safety Inspection Certification to the city. The inspection must cover both the structural and electrical aspects of the building.
- You are then required to submit the certification form and the permit application to the city, along with a $200 payment. The form must indicate whether the building is safe or requires repairs.
- If the building is safe, the recertification is complete, and no further inspections are required until the next 10-year cycle.
- If the building is in need of repairs, you have 180 days to get the necessary permits and complete the specified repairs. The engineer or architect must then re-inspect the property and submit a new certification form to the city, confirming that the repairs have been done and the building is safe.
What are the consequences of not complying with 40/50 year recertification?
Failing to submit your Recertification Report can have some serious consequences. You may receive a Civil Violation Notice without any prior warning.
To make things worse, the issue could also be escalated to the Unsafe Structures Unit, which can result in condemnation proceedings.
You may also have to pay substantial fines and the department's incurred enforcement costs.
In the worst-case scenario, your building may get issued a Notice of Violation for being an unsafe structure. In this situation, you might be required to evacuate the premises and may have to demolish the building.
