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.  See our page listing local surveyors: Find a Land Surveyor.

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.

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.
