Effective  October 14th, 2009, buyers of foreclosed properties in the City of Doral will get some protection against unexpected repairs or other deficiencies of the property under an ordinance adopted by the City Council on October 14th, 2009.


Ordinance No. 2009-15 applies to all residential properties in the City of Doral which are acquired through a Certificate of Title (Foreclosures and Judgments), in accordance with Chapter 45, Florida Statutes. Residential properties affected include single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses and duplexes.

The new CU includes the preparation of a disclosure of findings report, which identifies building or zoning code violations for such properties and contains a good faith estimate of the cost to remedy any deficiencies. This report must be completed by an architect or professional engineer licensed and registered in the State of Florida.

Failure to obtain the required CU will result in penalties as provided in Chapter 8CC of the County code.
