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 it’s likely the City doesn’t have a copy. Older certificates may be difficult to read or only contain the first page. In those instances, the City doesn’t posses a clearer copy nor additional pages.
