Cape Canaveral Special Magistrate Addresses Unpermitted Building Violations

At a recent Cape Canaveral Special Magistrate meeting, a case involving significant building code violations by DMB Land Holdings LLC was the centerpiece of discussions. The entity, linked to John J. Sebard Jr., faced scrutiny for undertaking extensive construction work without obtaining the necessary permits. This included the enclosure of a carport into a garage, the installation of new garage doors, stairs, and railings, as well as the addition of new exterior doors.

During the meeting, a city code enforcement officer provided a detailed account of the violations at the property located on North Atlantic Avenue. It was revealed that despite multiple contacts and a courtesy letter from the city, the property owner failed to secure permits for the majority of the construction work done. While a permit for garage doors had been submitted, no final inspection was requested, and no permits were obtained for the other modifications, including the garage enclosure, deck, stairs, railings, and new doors.

The property owner acknowledged responsibility for the violations and expressed a willingness to comply with the necessary permit and inspection requirements. The Special Magistrate, in turn, granted a 45-day period for the owner to apply for the remaining permits and arrange for a final inspection of the garage doors. The Magistrate’s decision aimed to ensure public safety and code compliance without imposing immediate fines. Should the violations remain unaddressed within the given timeframe, a compliance hearing would be scheduled, potentially leading to fines that could become liens against the property.
