Due to the pressing situation with the economy, many of our neighborhoods have been affected by unsightly abandoned/vacant homes which are undergoing foreclosure. In order to minimize the negative impact on our neighborhoods, the Board of County Commissioners approved, on December 2, 2008, Ordinance 08-134, which requires that once a Lis Pendens is filed on a residential property, this be registered with the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER) through a "Registry". A citation of $500 will be issued to entities failing to register the property within 30 days of the filing of the Lis Pendens. The Implementing Orders which established the fee ($125) and the process to be followed for implementation of the Ordinance were approved by the Board of County Commissioners at its June 30, 2009 meeting. The implementation of this ordinance will commence on July 10, 2009. In anticipation of the implementation of this Ordinance, PERA conducted two workshops to discuss the proposed process with the industry (banks, lenders, realtors, contractors, etc.).The workshops were held on May 4, and May 28, 2009, at 2:00 pm, at the Jorge Mas Canosa Center located at 250 SW 114 Avenue,

Ordinance 08-134 applies only to residential properties in unincorporated Miami-Dade County. The Registry is renewable on its registration anniversary and changes on the ownership of the property are to be reported immediately.

After Registration
Once the Registry is filed with the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER), the department will conduct an inspection to ensure that the yard is being maintained to County code standards, that the dwelling is secured at all windows and doors, and that the pool barrier comples with the Zoning Code. The inspection will 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.

    Please be advised that any Lis Pendens recorded prior to July 10, 2009 DOES NOT need to register with the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources.
