On November 19, 2019, Ordinance No. 19-108 was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners. This ordinance was implemented in an effort to avoid diminished maintenance of properties and to prevent conditions that may affect the health, safety and quality of life of Miami-Dade County residents. The ordinance amends sections 17A-18, 17A-19 and 17A-20 of the Code of Miami-Dade County extending the application of the foreclosure registration requirements to non-residential properties in all zoning districts, with the exception of properties with bona-fide agricultural uses in agricultural districts, in the unincorporated areas of Miami-Dade County. Therefore, under this ordinance, the holder or owner of a mortgage or other debt instrument, will be required to register the residential or non-residential properties that meet the specified criteria with the Regulatory and Economic Resources Department, within ten days from the date of the filing of a Lis Pendens or an action to foreclose on the mortgage or other instrument of debt secured by the property. The foreclosure registration fee is $125.00. In addition, after the initial registration of the real property, a renewal registration will be required every twelve (12) months thereafter until final judgement and a certificate of title is issued in the foreclosure action, or until the foreclosure action and related Lis Pendens is dismissed. Failure to register the property within 10 days of the Filing of the Lis Pendens will result in the issuance of a $510 citation to include a $10 surcharge.

Upon initial registration and/or renewal registration of the property, the Code Compliance Division of the Regulatory and Economic Resources Department will conduct an inspection of the real property to determine compliance with the provisions of Chapter 17A and Chapter 19 of the Code of Miami-Dade County. This inspection will be conducted to ensure that the property is being maintained to County Code standards and that the residential dwelling or business/commercial structure is secured at all windows and doors. Please note that for real properties where applicable, compliance with the pool barrier requirements under the Zoning Code will be required.

The inspections for residential properties will be conducted to cover the following:
  • Structural condition of the property
  • Verify whether the windows and doors are secured or boarded up
  • Verify that the pool has a barrier that meets the Zoning Code standards
  • Check for junk, trash, abandoned property or solid waste in the property
  • Maintenance of the lawn/yard - grass, weeds, or non-native undergrowth is not to exceed 12 inches from the ground over 10% of the area
  • Maintenance of the swale area.

  • The inspections for non-residential properties in all zoning districts with the exception of bona-fide agricultural uses in agricultural districts will be conducted to cover the following:
  • Maintenance of the lawn/yard-grass, weeds, or non-native overgrowth is not to exceed 18 inches from the ground over 50% of the area
  • Maintenance of exterior pedestrian walkways, parking lots, paved areas, egress areas and public right of way
  • Maintenance of premise lighting in a safe and operable condition
  • Maintenance of information and directional signs in a safe and visible manner
  • Exterior Building Surface Maintenance
  • Maintenance of masonry walls, fences, landscape buffers and entrance features
  • Check for prohibited display of vehicles for sale or as advertised devices
