Building Division

The Town contracts with CAP Government, Inc. (CAP), a private firm, to provide Building Division services. CAP reviews permits to ensure compliance with the Florida Building Code and oversees building inspection services to ensure the health, safety and welfare of Lauderdale-ByThe-Sea residents. 

CAP employees process building permit applications Monday through Friday between 8AM and 4:30PM.  For your convenience, we also accept submissions for permitting through our online portal, which can be accessed here.

The Town is now able to accept permit applications online. Click here for online permit submission instructions.
