If you own and occupy a one or two family house you may be eligible to act as your own contractor per State Statute (489.103(7). As an owner builder though, if you do not complete all of the work yourself, you must supervise the work, and hire licensed trade subcontractors (electrician, plumbing, a/c, and roof) in accordance with state law. Owners acting as their own contractor are required to personally appear for all permitting, provide proof that the property is properly insured and be present for all inspections. All the requirements are found on the Owner Builder Affidavit.
To ensure that all work meets the current building codes, the Building Division is responsible for performing inspections for all permitted construction work performed in the City of Hallandale Beach. Inspections are made daily and are divided into specific phases (Foundation, Slab/Floor Framing, Lintel/Team Beam, Framing, Insulation, Final) to assure all of the work gets inspected before it is covered up. These phases do not apply to storm water, transportation, landscaping and fire inspections. These inspections are conducted by other departments or during the final inspection at the end of the construction.
If the construction site is not ready for inspections or there are excessive code violations discovered during the inspection, a Notice of Violation may be issued and a re-inspection fee will be charged.
The following is a list of project types that require inspection:
Note: Additional inspections may be required depending on the type of construction. Failure to call for a required inspection could result in fines. For more information on time frame for your inspection click here.
Timed inspections are not generally available and need to be arranged directly with the inspector; on a needs basis and as time permits. Call before 4pm the day before inspection day.
