Changes to the recertification law

You may have received a notice for “recertification for a 40 year old building”, even though you do not own or manage a 40 year old structure. This is because, due to recent changes, the  recertification process is now required for 30 year old and 25 year old buildings in certain  locations.  

Our office staff promises to schedule your recertification inspection within 2 business days after being retained, and we will provide you with your building recertification inspection reports within 5 business days after the inspection has been  completed. Once we have performed your building recertification and everything has been  corrected (if anything), you will not need another recertification inspection for another 10  years.

FAQs

Our team is ready to assist you with your questions. Here are some of the more common questions we get surrounding our work.

A Milestone Inspection is a visual inspection, called a Phase 1 inspection, that is performed by a qualified Structural Engineer or architect on condominiums and coop association buildings that  are three or more stories in height and are 30 years old. Once your Milestone Inspection has been completed, your building will need to be reinspected every 10 years thereafter. This type of inspection may involve destructive or non-destructive testing at the discretion of the  inspector of record.

Structures that are within 3 miles from a coastline will be required to perform a Milestone Inspection after their first 25 years, and every 10 years thereafter. If major structural repairs are necessary, a Phase 2 inspection will be required to fully determine the areas of structural distress, confirm the building’s overall structural integrity and develop a formal program for the evaluation and repairing of the distressed areas of the structure. 

Omega Forensic Engineering can offer you these services through our various alliances throughout the South Florida area. Please contact our office for further information on milestone inspections.
