In 2008, the Board of County Commissioners of Miami-Dade County, Florida adopted Ordinance #08-133 (effective December 12, 2008), requiring the issuance of a Certificate of Use or “CU” for residential properties in unincorporated Miami-Dade County.

This CU applies to properties acquired through foreclosure procedings and Judgments through a Certificate of Title (per FS, Chapter 45).

The new ordinance requires individuals and institutions to obtain a CU BEFORE offering the property for sale or transfer meaning, “prior to making or accepting offers for sale from a potential buyer of such property”.

Enforcement of the new Certificate of Use ordinance began April 1, 2009.  For more information, you may contact the Planning and Zoning Department at 786-315-2660 or by visiting their website at www.MiamiDade.Gov/PlanZone.
