Information From Miami-Dade Building Department
The Emergency Relief Ordinance 09-10 is an amendment to Chapter 8 of the Code of Miami-Dade County which establishes a procedure for issuance of a Stop Work Order which would prevent the expiration of the building permit for qualifying property. Qualifying property includes: new residential or commercial construction with a permit issued or re-issued on or after October 1, 2006 with an expiration date on or before June 1, 2009. The construction work must have been halted due to economic hardship such as bankruptcy, foreclosure, assignment of benefit of creditors, short sales and slow sales as demonstrated by fewer than 50% of the units under construction being under sales contract.
