The City of Fort Lauderdale does not prepare elevation certificates. Elevation certificates are prepared by licensed surveyors, architects, and engineers. The certificates are submitted to the Floodplain Manager as a requirement of the building permit process. Once submitted, the Office of the Floodplain Manager retains a copy of the certificate.
To find out if an elevation certificate is available for your property, please contact the Floodplain Manager, Richard Benton, at 954-828-6133 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
