Elevation Certificates: Since 1995, Miami-Dade County has been collecting Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Elevation Certificates from home builders and developers, as a requirement of their building permit. Elevation certificates are also required for substantially damaged structures and electrical/mechanical equipment such as generators. For more information, call the Flood Zone Hot-Line at 305-372-6466, during office hours (M-F 8AM – 5PM). If your property was built prior to 1995 and you have never substantially improved or experienced substantial damage to the structure, you may have to hire a professional land surveyor if you need an Elevation Certificate. For a list of licensed surveyors in Miami-Dade County call the Flood Zone Hot-Line at 305-372-6466.
