Request an Extension of Time Hearing for Code Enforcement Case

Are you a property owner with an open Code Enforcement case where the violation is 'not complied' (has not been fully corrected) and would like to request more time from the Code Enforcement Board to correct the violation?  The City of Miami understands that you may need more time to address your code violations. 


Determine Your Eligibility.

  • Power of Attorney, if applicable: A valid power of attorney is required if you are not the owner. NOTE: You will be required to upload this document in PDF format when completing the questionnaire.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: All documents and information submitted for a public hearing become a public record available to anyone who seeks public information. It is important that you do not submit any sensitive information.
