Certificate of Use for Foreclosed Properties


On December 2, 2008 the Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance No. 08-133, which requires issuance of a Certificate of Use (CU) by the Department of Planning and Zoning (DP&Z) for residential properties (in unincorporated Miami-Dade County) which are acquired through a Certificate of Title (Foreclosures and Judgments), in accordance with Chapter 45, Florida Statutes. This new ordinance requires the establishment of a new Certificate of Use process for such properties. This process will require that affected individuals/institutions obtain a CU, prior to the offering of such property either through a sale, transfer or alienation of such property.
