40 year structural inspections Daytona Beach
If you are looking for a condo in Florida, there is a good chance that the condos you will be looking at may be at least 40 years old, and if not, will be 40 years old someday… As a Buyer, you need to be aware that 40 Year Recertification of buildings is required by ordinance in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. These Recertification ordinances apply throughout the counties and their incorporated cities. The purpose of these ordinances is to ensure that the buildings are structurally and electrically safe and intact. The repairs that could possibly be required can be costly, and you need to ask questions..
Some Background about the 40 and 10 Year Structural Inspection, 50 Recertification/Certification for Broward and Miami-Dade Counties…
For buildings approaching their 40 year anniversary, there may be county requirements for a “40 year Recertification/Certification Inspection” and this inspection/certification will be enforced every 10 years after the 40 year anniversary.
For building and Condo owners, even if you have not yet received a “Notice of Required Inspection” by the code compliance section of your county or city, it is the property owner’s responsibility to acquire the initial 40/50-year (re)certification and to recertify their building every 10 years thereafter. Because of this, the inspections must be done by or under the supervision of a qualified, Professional Engineer or Architect. This is a process which takes time and money.
