If your building is over 40 years of age or older and it is located in Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach you may be required to provide to the Local Building Department a safety inspection report called 40 years inspection prepared by a Professional Engineer or Architect.
You may have received notification or you may receive it at a later time this year. Please, call this office for an estimate to comply with this requirement.
Our licensed and qualified inspection team will visit your building. Once on-site we will perform a structural and electrical inspection as required by Miami Dade, Broward, Fort Lauderdale FL, and surrounding areas. We have been performing these inspections for longer than most other inspection companies which allows us to provide this service not only at a reasonable price, but to keep your repair costs (if any) at a minimum. We are familiar with all the cities in South Florida and the staff is familiar with our company.
What is 40 Years Inspection?
The 40-Years Recertification program was designed to ensure the structural and electrical integrity of a building for its continued safe use. Each January a list of buildings meeting the program requirements are provided to the Building Officials from a data base that the Board of Rules and Appeals obtain from the County Property Appraiser’s Office. The program is then be administrated by City Building Department and a notification letter is sent. The owner of a building or structure shall then furnish within 90 days the required Safety Inspection forms to the Building Official prepared by an engineer or architect. In the event that repairs are necessary, the owner has 180 days from the date of the building inspection report in which to correct the structural and electrical deficiencies (if any) that pose an immediate threat to life safety.
