Florida Code Enforcement Attorneys Work for You to Defend Against Property Fines
Each of Florida’s 67 counties and 410 municipalities has a code enforcement division. Code enforcement is tasked with the responsibility of insuring a property’s compliance with the applicable local code of ordinances.
While the county or city is represented by its own in-house attorney’s office, tax-paying property owners are left to fend for themselves. Pursuant to Chapter 162, Florida Statutes, fines can be placed on your property in amounts ranging from $50 to $500 per day.
However, with a knowledgeable advocate acting on your behalf, many times an amicable resolution can be reached without any fine being imposed on your property.
