Notice of Commencement

A Notice of Commencement is required for real property improvements greater than $2,500.00. Projects that require a Notice of Commencement (NOC) may submit the document to the Building Department, Records Management Division for recording. The Records Management division’s staff will record the document electronically with the Miami-Dade County Clerk of Courts. The cost of recording the document will be added to the balance due on the permit. We are working harder so you won’t have to.


Provide time and cost savings to customers by minimizing the need to travel to county facilities to record the Notice of Commencement.

The recorded document can be printed from the Clerk of Courts website the next business day, eliminating the delay to receive it by mail.
