How to Obtain a Certificate

Elevation Certificates must be completed by a Florida-licensed land surveyor.  Typically, the cost for a single certificate runs somewhere between $250 to $400.  If you need more than one (multiple buildings or multiphase construction project), try to work out a package deal.

City staff can not make any recommendations regarding individual surveyors. 

City Elevation Certificate

Elevation Certificates are routinely submitted for building permit approvals and are public information.  Currently, there are about 1,300 such certificates on-file with the city.  View a map for flood certificates.

View Certificates

New certificates are uploaded weekly, so if one doesn't appear here, the City will likely not have a copy.  Older certificates may be difficult to read or only contain the first page.  The City doesn't possess a clearer copy or additional pages in those instances.
