The number of days allowed to comply with a Miami Beach Code Violation or Stop Work Order will vary from case to case and is determined by the Miami Beach Code Compliance Inspector. The time is typically based on the severity of the violation and the danger that it may pose to the public. As licensed Miami architects and General Contractors, we can help you negotiate the proper time needed to obtain the building permit.
The code violation will be considered closed only after a a Miami Beach building permit has been issued to cure the violation and the Miami Beach Building Department has performed a final inspection for it. The property may be referred to the Miami Beach Unsafe Structures Board if the code violation is not resolved within the set time frame and the Miami Beach Building permit expires. We can help you get an extension to stop your property from receiving further liens and fines.
When a property owner is initially found to be performing work without a proper permit the Miami Beach Building Department will issue a Stop Work Order or Notice of Violation that require the owner obtain a Miami Beach building permit.
