Are you buying or renovating a property? The City keeps records of all permits and plans on any property, so that buyers and owners may be informed of a building's full history.
If necessary, you can make an appointment to view records in-person to avoid unnecessary printing charges and a waiting period. Please call (305) 416-1140 or email buildingrecords@Miamigov.com to make an appointment.
