Do you own old property in Broward, Florida? You’re required by law to perform 40 year building recertification for electrical safety and structural integrity. First enforced in 1975, the edict was replaced by the Florida Building Code which requires commercial buildings within Broward to undergo recertification after every 10 years. Once the time lapses, you will be issued with forms plus the notice of required building inspection.
Property owners have 90 days to comply and to carry out the building inspection. If you have received the notification, we can assist you to inspect your building is safe and sound structurally. Our inspectors will look at the condition of the walls, electrical components, and supporting structures and advise where enhancements are necessary. You will be given 60 days to undertake any necessary improvements after which our structural engineers will write a report to indicate what enhancements have been made for your structure to be re-certified.
