Broward County 40 Year Building Safety Inspection Requirement

Broward County requires Building Safety Inspections on all buildings over 40 years old and over 3,500 square feet. Single-family homes, duplexes, and all buildings under 3,500 square feet are exempt from this requirement. If you are a single-family home, duplex, or building under 3,500 square feet, you are not required to have this inspection.

The City is aware that engineering and architectural firms are sending out notices regarding the Building Safety Inspection requirements. If you receive one of their notices, remember your property may not be subject to the requirements. The City does not endorse any of the firms sending out the notices.

If you have questions regarding Building Safety Inspections, contact the Lighthouse Point Building Department.
