Demolition of Illegal Home Addition

Below is a before and after comparison of a Work Without Permit violation on a property resulting in the demolition of the non-permitted part of the structure. An attempt to legalize this home addition was impossible becuase how poorly it had been constructed. Over half of the living area in this property had been built without the proper permits from the Miami-Dade Building & Zoning Dept. and therefore had to be demolished.

Unsafe Structure & Code Compliance Violations Rehabilitation

The owners had to hire an attorney to file an injunction to put a halt to the demolition order that the county had placed on the property. In due time if the owners did not begin to correct the problems by submitting plans and permits, the department was in its right to demolish the existing house and leave the bill for the owner to pay. The county would then place a lien on the property in order for them to recuperate their monies.
