Improve Quality of Life in Miami Beach by Reporting Code Violations http://www.miamirealestateguy.com/improve-quality-life-miami-beach-reporting-code-violations/ http://www.miamirealestateguy.com/improve-quality-life-miami-beach-reporting-code-violations/#respond Wed, 17 May 2017 14:00:02 +0000 http://www.miamirealestateguy.com/?p=5345 Realtors, homeowners, and renters: maintaining our neighborhoods and our community’s quality of life is a shared responsibility between all of us; and the city of Miami Beach has a code compliance department that’s there specifically to enforce the codes that keep our neighborhoods clean and safe....read more]]>

Realtors, homeowners, and renters: maintaining our neighborhoods and our community’s quality of life is a shared responsibility between all of us; and the city of Miami Beach has a code compliance department that’s there specifically to enforce the codes that keep our neighborhoods clean and safe. Our code compliance officers monitor residential and commercial districts for violations of the city code, and are responsible for ensuring compliance. As a resident of Miami Beach, you can do your part to improve our neighborhoods by understanding what is legal and illegal, and reporting every violation that you see to our Code Compliance Department.

Below are the most commonly reported violations; we encourage you to report any of them that you see in your neighborhood:

    • Illegal Dumping Keep your neighborhood clean – don’t dump illegally! Single-family homes or residents with residential city service trash pickup are allotted 4 free bulk pick-ups a year with a scheduled appointment. Please do not place garbage or trash out for collection on the swale (adjacent city property that includes a depression created in the ground that carries rainwater by gravity away from your home and property) more than 24 hours before your scheduled collection time. With proof of residency, Miami Beach residents also have the ability to discard bulk items and other refuse at no cost. For more information on proper disposal for residents, contact the sanitation department at 305-673-7616.
    • Littering Throwing trash such as paper, bottles, cans, food containers and even litter left behind by cat feeders on the ground is illegal littering. Littering is illegal, harmful to the environment and just looks bad. Help keep Miami Beach clean by trashing your trash and recycling your recyclables, visit www.keepmbclean.com to learn more, and educate everyone you know about this urgent issue in Miami Beach.
    • Overgrowth Rainy season means grass grows faster than usual. Every property owner is required to maintain their property and swale by cutting their grass regularly and keeping the area free of weeds.
    • Graffiti Properties must be graffiti-free. Please cover graffiti with matching paint. Businesses have seven days from the day of citation to correct the violation and residents are allowed 10 days. If you see graffiti, you can report it using the free e-Gov App below or via this link.
    • Signage (unpermitted & prohibited) Posting ANY signs on public property is illegal, and under certain circumstances will result in violations and fines. While election signs are not allowed on public property, they are allowed on private properties within certain specifications. Please contact the code compliance department for more information at 305.673.7555. All real estate signs without a permit are illegal.
    • Illegal or Unlicensed Short-Term Rentals Pursuant to the Miami Beach City Codes (Sec 142-1111 and Sec. 142-905) (Miami Beach Land Development Regulation – Chapter 142, Article IV, Division 3) vacation/short-term rentals are prohibited in all single-family homes and in many multi-family housing buildings in certain zoning districts of Miami Beach. Approved vacation/short-term rentals must have the proper authorization and zoning approval for this activity, including a business tax receipt. If a building or unit is found to be operating a short-term rental illegally, tenants/visitors will be vacated and fines will apply to the owner. For more information, visit: www.practicesaferenting.com
    • Boats, Trailers, & Scooters Boats, boat trailers, camper trailers, recreational vehicles, and scooters must be parked on a paved, permanent surface area on the side of your home or backyard. These types of vehicles are not permitted to be used as a dwelling and cannot be visible from any right-of-way or adjoining property. If you see illegally parked vehicles, you can report them using the free e-Gov App below.
    • Property Maintenance of Structures Property maintenance standards are crucial to the prevention of blight and decay, and the safeguarding of public health, safety, morals and welfare. Please keep your area and surrounding property not just clean, trimmed and painted, but ensure there are no visible signs of decay (broken windows, peeling paint, broken fences, unmaintained landscaping, pest infestations, etc.). If you see unmaintained properties, you can report them using the free e-Gov App below.
    • Items or Activities that Require a City Permit Some of the most common items requiring a permit include: real estate signs and garage sale signs. Permits can be acquired through the license division at 305-673-7420; Permits for painting the exterior of a building can be obtained through the Planning Department at 305.673.7550; and building renovations and fences prepared through the Building Department at 305-673-7610.
    • Dogs and Other Pets Dogs and other animals must be on a leash when in public. If you see any pet that is off-leash, you should report it immediately by calling 305-673-9453.
    • Commercial Storefronts Brown paper covering the windows of empty commercial storefronts is illegal. The city has launched a program to eliminate the appearance of blighted empty storefronts. The city will provide window covers to replace the ugly brown paper we often see. If you see a storefront with illegal brown paper, you should report it by calling 305-673-9453 or by using the free e-Gov App below.
    • Other Issues There are many other things that you can report through the app or via phone that the City of Miami Beach ENCOURAGES you to report. These items include damaged or cracked sidewalks or curbs, potholes, standing water, broken or defaced crosswalk signals, broken street lights, and many more items. The free e-Gov App will provide you with a list of items that the City wants you to report or you can simply read the City of Miami Beach website to learn more.

     

    City of Miami Beach e-Gov Cell Phone App

    The City of Miami Beach has a free cell phone app designed specifically for you to report every code violation that you notice. The app connects you directly with the City of Miami Beach government to resolve issues in the community in a snap. Report concerns, track requests and provide comments. The app also has a ton of other useful features for residents.

    Urgent Reporting of Violations: If you see a violation that requires an IMMEDIATE response (off-leash dogs, illegally parked cars, dog owners not picking up their dog waste, etc. etc. you should report it immediately by calling 305-673-9453, not by using the cell phone app.

As most of my readers and clients already know; I am a huge fan of low-key, well-designed, nature-inspired, unobtrusive, and ‘earthy’ developments. The latest project that meets my criteria is Monad Terrace in the West Avenue neighborhood of South Beach.

Monad Terrace in Miami Beach is quite the interesting story. Monad Terrace was a residential street in South Beach consisting of 14 multi-family apartment buildings and single family residences. Over the course of 2 years, New York based development company JDS Development bought the entire street in order to develop the newest condo tower in Miami Beach. JDS paid $42 million for these properties; with some property owners making a $9 million profit on the sale of their property!

The total size of the entire street works out to be about 1.4 acres and JDS Development is going to build a stunning 14-story tall condominium project on the now-leveled street facing Biscayne Bay. The building, which retains the name of the street (located at 1300 Monad Terrace, Miami Beach Florida 33139), is being designed by the Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel and local Miami architects, Kobi Karp. Monad Terrace will have 59 total condo units in 2 towers separated by a lushly landscaped lagoon. The first tower is 149 feet tall and the second is 90 feet tall. Miami Beach has a 150 foot height restriction (16 stories) on buildings in this area of the city. Rather than making Monad Terrace 16 stories tall, JDS is planning on 15 stories, with higher ceiling heights in the condos.

Monad Terrace Miami Beach Condos For Sale

Rendering of Monad Terrace Condominiums from Biscayne Bay facing East

Monad Terrace is composed of 59 individually designed waterfront residences around a glittering lagoon; directly on the shore of Biscayne Bay. Designed by Jean Nouvel, Monad Terrace condos provide brilliant light and expansive private outdoor spaces sheltered by climbing gardens of native plants and flowers.Jean Nouvel artfully directs the play of reflections and water throughout the project, bouncing light into living spaces, while the lagoon and swimming pool draw the feeling of Biscayne Bay deep into the heart of the property, creating what Nouvel has dubbed “the reflection machine.” Monad Terrace’s unique honeycomb sawtooth façade captures, diffuses, and reflects incoming light, simultaneously framing views and providing privacy.

Monad Terrace will not only feature lush greenery on the exterior; it will also have panels mounted outside of the windows of the condos that will create privacy while allowing condo owners to look through them from the inside without obstruction. This feature seems so obvious, yet I’m not aware of any other condo tower in Miami that has them. In most condo towers, you have zero privacy from people looking into your unit, unless you are a direct-ocean facing unit, or a direct-bay facing unit. These architectural screens solve the privacy problem, and look quite stunning as well. The two-story lobby will be transparent; allowing everyone that passes by on West Avenue to look directly through the building to Biscayne Bay.

The most beautiful feature at Monad Terrace will be the ground-floor lagoon. In the middle of this private oasis there will be a seating area for residents, and the western-edge of the lagoon will end by a swimming pool with a waterfall that looks like a water slide going into Biscayne Bay. The lagoon will be naturally filtered with an array of lush vegetation; with giant ferns, spider plants, sea grape, mondo grass, and palm trees. While Monad Terrace will feature these stunning water features for residents to enjoy, a growing concern in Miami Beach is sea-level rise due to climate change. The West Avenue street that the project is being built upon is one of the most flood-prone areas in Miami Beach. The City has spent millions raising the streets and adding pumps to remove storm water from the area. The designer of Monad Terrace didn’t overlook this concern when designing the new building. Monad Terrace will have forward-thinking features that are designed to keep unwanted water out of the property as well. The underground parking garage is designed to guarantee that no water can ever enter it, and the landscaping of the property is designed to absorb flood water. A public-access path will run along the south side of the property and will connect West Avenue to Baywalk (a public promenade that is still incomplete due to other condo properties in the neighborhood refusing to participate in the walkway).

If you’ve paid more than $100 to apply to live in a condo in Florida, you’ve been ripped off.

Miami Condo Listings with Illegal Application Fees

Miami Condo Listings with Illegal Application Fees. Courtesy of Miami Herald.

Last month I was reading the latest issue of ‘Florida Realtors’ magazine and I came across an article that informed Florida Realtors that condominium associations are not permitted to charge any transfer fee or application fee that exceeds $100 per applicant, (and that any husband, wife and child are always considered one applicant). Whether this fee is a transfer fee, an application fee, or a tenant screening fee; the maximum fee allowed by Florida state law is $100. This came as a complete surprise to me, considering I had assisted many clients with rentals and sales of condo properties in Miami in which the condo management fees ranged from $100 to $250. Almost every client that I have ever had has complained to me about these illegal application fees, but until reading the article in the ‘Florida Realtors’ magazine, I was completely unaware that any fee exceeding $100 was illegal.

I decided that something should be done about it.

I called the Florida Realtors Legal Hotline to clarify that these fees were illegal, and to get more information for my clients about what kind of recourse they would have to get their money back. The Florida Realtors Legal Hotline is an invaluable resource for Realtors that allows us to instantly speak to an attorney about various real estate topics.  The attorney that assisted me informed me that, yes, any fee exceeding $100 is illegal, and that my clients have 4 options to get their money back and to report this illegal activity. Those 4 options are listed below.

I then reached out to the Miami Herald to see if they’d like to investigate this issue, and to help get the word out to consumers statewide. Real Estate reporter Nick Nehamas did an amazing job researching how widespread this illegal activity really is, and helped consumers statewide by publishing it on the cover of the Miami Herald on Friday, June 3, 2016:

“South Florida condo boards rip off consumers with high application fees” – Miami Herald

The newspaper analyzed the current listings in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and found that in Miami-Dade county, 46% of the condominiums listed for rent or sale show that they require a fee of more than $100 per applicant. The issue here is that Realtors are the ones entering the fee into the MLS system; so they are exacerbating the problem by allowing the activity to continue, and by publishing it for their clients and other Realtors to see. In my opinion, Realtors should be highly aware that any application fee over $100 is illegal, and thus, they should never be entering any number higher than that into the MLS, and they should be reporting any condo that’s attempting to charge an excessive fee to their clients, and to the State of Florida.  For those Realtors that are unaware that these fees are illegal, the MLS system itself should be set up to stop any Realtor from entering a number higher than $100 into the application fee field. This is an issue that myself, and some other Realtors, are taking up with the Miami Association of Realtors.

Clearly, this is a HUGE issue, and it’s going to take a LOT of work, by a lot of people, to resolve it. If Realtors are educated properly they can inform their clients to never pay illegal fees. If condo boards are educated properly they can change their policy on fees to comply with Florida State law.

Quantum on the Bay Miami Illegal Condo Application Fee

The Miami Herald investigation found that Quantum on the Bay in Miami charges renters $625 to apply and move in.

If you’ve been the victim of illegal condo fees, do these 4 things:

Inform the condo board that the fee is illegal.
Consumers should inform condo associations that they are breaking the law. If you have already paid an illegal fee, you are entitled to a refund. Section 718.112(2)(i) of the Florida Statutes prohibits condos from charging more than $100 in transfer fees per person or married couple. That includes application fees, credit checks, background screenings, move-in fees, pet registration and other charges related to the sale or lease of a condo unit.

File a complaint with the Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes.
If the association insists on charging more than what is allowed by law, you must file a written complaint with the Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares, and Mobile Homes.  You can download a PDF copy of the complaint form and email your form to the Customer Contact Center via this page: http://www.myfloridalicense.com/contactus. Within 30 days after receipt of the complaint, the Division will notify you whether the complaint is within the jurisdiction of the Division and whether additional information is needed. If appropriate, the Division will then conduct an investigation.

File a complaint with the Florida Attorney General.
The Florida Attorney General’s office accepts consumer complaints. Visit the following website for information: http://myfloridalegal.com/Contact.nsf/Contact?OpenForm&Section=Consumer_Protection_Division

File a civil lawsuit, or join a class-action lawsuit.
Consumers can also file civil lawsuits against condo associations. After the publication of the article in the Miami Herald, many attorneys have begun investigating claims.  One such attorney is Aaron Resnick, P.A.
