We Can Help You Challenge The Penalties
As a homeowner living in Miami Beach, you have the right share your home or property as you see fit. Yet the city’s stringent regulations prevent many from exercising this right freely.
Unfortunately, those who choose to ignore the rules are subject to the following penalties:
- $20,000 for first-time offenders
- $40,000 for a second offense within 18 months
- $60,000 for third-time offenders within 18 months
- $80,000 for a fourth violation within 18 months
- $100,000 for a fifth violation and beyond that occurs within 18 months
The state of Florida does not allow for municipal governing bodies to fine residents in excess of $1,000 a day for code violations, however. This means that should the city of Miami Beach accuse you of a violation, you have a right to challenge these charges.
