Improper parking or storage of recreational vehicles may result in the issuance of a Courtesy Warning Notice.

Both the tenant and property owner may receive notices in connection with enforcement. However, the property owner is ultimately responsible for compliance.

Failure to comply will result in a ticket to the property owner and tenant, in accordance with Chapter 8CC of the Miami-Dade County Code of Ordinances.

Penalties accrue and a lien may be placed on the property if the fines, enforcement costs and administrative costs are not paid or the violation not corrected.

Additional time for compliance may be granted on Courtesy Warning Notices. Call the Neighborhood Regulations office at 786-315-2552 to request an extension.

Ticket Amounts:

  • $210: first offense
  • $410: second offense
  • $810: subsequent offenses
