Quick Service Permit Review

Quick Service Permit ReviewThe “Quick Service Permit Review” is an early service that provides residents with a quick permit review for residential roofs, fences, slabs, driveways, shutters, etc. 

The process coordinates a team of permit clerks, zoning examiners and structural plan reviewers.

The team reviews all pertinent documents and drawings. 

This allows customers to receive permits immediately instead of going through the normal process which takes about a week.

Building Code Compliance Violation

The Miramar Building Code Compliance Section is responsible for investigating all violations of the Florida Building Code. Violations range from unlicensed contractors and unpermitted construction work to all unresolved violations of the applicable building codes. Violations are investigated for validity by the Building Code Compliance Inspectors.

Building Code Compliance Violation Process:

Code Violations are reported by the public and other County/State agencies through complaint letters, or phone calls. The Florida Building Code mandates the Building Official to issue Notices of Violations and Citations, which carry a civil penalty of up to $500.00 for any person, firm, corporation or agent who commences work without first applying for a building permit. Any such person, firm, corporation or agent who fails to comply with a Notice of Violation or Citation may be brought before the Unsafe Structure Board or the Municipal Court for disciplinary action.

If you have observed or witnessed a building code compliance violation, you may:

  • Fill in electronically and email the Building Code Compliance Form to jalynch@ci.miramar.fl.us
  • Print and mail the Building Code Compliance Form to Jim Lynch, Chief Code Compliance Officer, 2200 Civic Center Place, Miramar, FL 33025

Garage Sale Permit

Garage Sale PermitA Garage Sale is defined as, “any sale of used merchandise owned by the person conducting the sale or his/her immediate family.”  All items for the sale must be displayed in a garage, carport or roofed porch (if applicable), or yard.

You are required to obtain a Garage Sale permit from the Miramar Building Division, 2200 Civic Center Place, at a cost of $10 (cash only).  You are permitted to have one (1) Garage Sale in each six (6) month period.  The sale may not exceed three (3) consecutive days.
