Effective May 26, 2022, condominium and cooperative association buildings in Florida that are three stories or taller are now required by law to undergo Milestone Inspections.
Milestone Inspections must be performed by a licensed Professional Engineer or architect and are performed when the building reaches a certain age - 25 years for buildings within three miles of the coastline, and 30 years for buildings farther from the coastline. For buildings already past their milestone year, an inspection must be carried out by December 31, 2024.
These inspections are a legal requirement, and it is the association's responsibility to ensure they are carried out timely and in accordance with the law. In doing so, you not only fulfill your legal obligations but also ensure the safety and structural integrity of your building.
