Update on Florida Statutes for Inspected Customers/Contractors: Permit Fee Reductions
Attention Inspected Customers and Contractors!
We want to make sure you are aware of an important update regarding permit fees in Florida. According to FL Statute 553.791 Section 2B, if you choose to work with a private provider like Inspected for plans review or building inspection services, the local jurisdiction is required to reduce your permit fee.
This reduction is based on the cost savings that the local enforcement agency experiences by not having to perform these services.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Permit Fee Reduction: The local jurisdiction must provide a reduction in the permit fee, which can be calculated as a flat fee, a percentage, or through other reasonable means of assessing the cost for plans review or inspection services.
- No Building Inspection Fees: If you hire a private provider like Inspected for building inspections, the local jurisdiction cannot charge you fees for those inspections. However, they may charge a reasonable administrative fee.
- Faster Plan Reviews and Inspections: Working with Inspected allows you to benefit from faster plan reviews and inspections compared to the municipality. This means you can get your permits closed out faster, saving you time and money.
- Material Savings for Contractors: By utilizing Inspected’s services and paying for them, contractors can expect substantial upfront fee savings. This eliminates any perception of additional costs associated with using Inspected while providing significant benefits.
