Permit Fees

Like the cost of everything else, permit fees have increased over the years at a steady pace with the inflation rate, but, during the last year, and in the worst recession in decades, the fees charged by municipalities, has in many cases, increased by 100 percent. With local Florida governments looking for additional revenue sources, one of the first places they targeted was permit fees.

Estimate your permit fees to be 3-5% of the cost of your project, or as much as 10% in Key Biscayne and Weston. There are a few municipalities that have held their permit fees at pre-recession levels but they are few and far between. 

Please continue to use the proper permitting process and don't skip doing work under permit as it protects you from fees of up to 150% after the fact, and ensures the work was done properly and will last you a long time.
