A 40 year recertification is a prerequisite for all structures in the counties of Miami-Dade and Broward, including condo buildings. Talking about a 40 year inspection and recertification process for condos, its importance can’t be overstated, given that it involves the safety of hundreds of thousands of people. In fact, if data from the Community Association Institute is any suggestion, there are over 1.5 million condominium units across Florida. And among these condo units, 37 percent of them are situated in the two counties of Broward and Miami-Dade.

As such, you shouldn’t be surprised when we say that condo buildings are among the top priorities for structural engineer inspection and recertification. More so, in the aftermath of the tragic Surfside condo collapse, the overall safety of condominium buildings has been into focus. After all, the Champlain Towers South building was undergoing a 40 year structural inspection at the time of its collapse. Thus, the latest round of changes to the recertification scheme in Miami-Dade was much called for.

Now, if you are a member of your condominium board or association, the onus is on you to get a timely 40 year recertification inspection. Also, if your condo building is in Miami-Dade, you’ll need to comply with the new county rules calling for a 30 year recertification instead of 40.

And while this may sound like a task, we have compiled everything that you need to know for hassle-free condo recertification. So let’s dive right in and have a look.

40 Year Condo Structural Inspections & certification

Post the Surfside condo collapse, there had been strong demands to change the existing recertification inspection rules. And Miami-Dade county responded with a slew of changes to the 40 year structural inspection scheme, effective June 2022.

Among the key highlights of the changes in rules are a 25/40 year recertification inspection requirement for all structures, condo included.

That means you’ll have to get your condominium building thoroughly inspected and recertified in its 30th year. Further, recertification of your condo building will be carried out every ten years thereafter, and so the name 30/40 year recertification.

But there’s a catch with the new Miami-Dade county rules, something you should be aware of.

  1. If your condo was built anywhere between 1983 and 1986 and has 40 year recertification due before March 31, 2024, the new rules won’t apply to it. Meaning, the building needs to get a recertification certificate in its 40th year.
  2. If the condominium was constructed between 1983 and 1992 and is about to turn 30 before March 31, 2024, a recertification will be done as per the new rules.
