Premise Location Certificate

A Premise Location Certificate (PLC) includes information related to current accounts, outstanding balances, liens, bankruptcy, write-offs, tampering costs or other financial responsibilities on a water and sewer account.

  • Request a certificate

    To order a certificate, complete the form and submit it by fax, mail or in person.

    To request the process by fax, a Premise Location Certificate account must be established and payment prepaid.

  • Establish an account

    Fax your request to establish an account and provide a telephone contact so a department representative can reach you.

  • Fees

    • Advance payment of $20 per request for a 24-hour written response.
    • Advance payment of $10 per request for a written response within 7 to 10 days.

    To pay:

    • Establish a Premise Location Certificate account. Payments can then be drawn from that account if you make numerous requests.
    • Mail the request, payment, form and self-addressed stamped envelope.
  • Eligibility

    Properties not served by the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department will be advised accordingly on each Premise Location Certificate. However, the Department does not provide written notice of service verification through the certificate process.

    Customers interested in service address validation must call the New Business Office at 786-268-5360.
