Milestone Inspections and Building Recertification Changes in Miami-Dade County

The new requirements for milestone inspections, as outlined in the new state law (SB 4-D: Building Safety), along with recent amended Ordinances, have the following impacts on all existing buildings in Miami-Dade County:

  1. All buildings built on or before 1982 that have already had an initial recertification inspection through Miami-Dade’s 40-Year program will continue to follow the established schedule.

  2. Coastal condominium and cooperative buildings three stories or taller built between 1983 and 1997 and located within three miles of the coastline must have a recertification inspection by December 31, 2024, and every 10 years after that. All other buildings built between 1983 and 1992 must have a recertification inspection by December 31, 2024, and every 10 years after that.

  3. All condominium and cooperative association buildings three stories or taller and located within three miles of the coastline built on or after 1998 must have a building recertification inspection when the building age reaches 25 years and every 10 years after that. All other buildings constructed on or after 1993 must have a recertification inspection when the building age reaches 30 years and every 10 years after that.
