When do I need a Permit?

Any construction or alteration to properties in Miami Shores requires a Building Permit except for any pressure cleaning.  You can obtain a permit application at the Building Department located at Village Hall or can download a copy here.

Permits are usually required for interior and exterior construction, plumbing and water supply work, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electrical work and exterior painting.  Accessory structures (shed, pools, satellite dishes, etc.) also require permits. A permit is needed when the owner wants to add something or change the location of something on the property. Before proceeding with any work, please check with the Building Department at (305) 795-2204.
