The purpose of this notice is to inform licensed building contractors, and other interested persons, about a change in inspections procedure if a property is located in a flood zone.
Currently, Lintel/Tie Beam inspections are not supposed to be scheduled until an “Under Construction” Elevation Certificate has been submitted and approved by a Plans Examiner. Effective immediately, an inspection hold will be added to permits with property addresses located in a flood zone. This will prevent the accidental scheduling of the Lintel/Tie Beam inspections until the “Under Construction” Elevation Certificate has been approved.
Thank you for your cooperation and attention to this notice. Please call 941.743.1201 or email BuildingSvcs@CharlotteCountyFL.gov if you have any questions.
