The City of Hollywood works with Broward County to ensure buildings in Hollywood that are 40 years old or older are in compliance with the Broward County 40-Year or Older Building Safety Inspection Program. When a building reaches 40-years or older (calculated by the actual year built), a notice is sent by the City to inform the building owner of record to have a structural inspection performed by a 3rd party certified architect or engineer and an electrical system inspection performed by a 3rd party license electrical contractor. The engineer's report will identify any deficiencies, which will necessitate repair permits. It is the sole responsibility of the property owner to hire a 3rd party Florida registered Professional Engineer Architect and Electrical Engineer to perform the required inspections. The property owner has 90 days from receipt of this letter to complete the inspection and have their engineer submit the report to the City.
