Building

In the unincorporated areas of Broward County and cities we contract with, we provide the following services:

  • We require property owners or contractors they hire to get a permit for any new construction or certain alterations to an existing residential or commercial building. This ensures conformance with the Florida Building Code and all applicable building codes, laws, rules and resolutions in effect in Broward County.

  • We perform inspections to verify work is done according to these laws which protect the health, safety and welfare of the public while helping the business or home owner avoid enforcement penalties for non-compliant work.

  • We administer and enforce minimum housing/unsafe structure regulations and other county ordinances relating to permitting that affect land, property structures and the environment.
