Open Permit Services
About us


Jack Wolf, Managing Partner of Open Permit Services, has lived and worked in Miami-Dade County for over 40 years. While semi-retired in 2000, he found himself faced with the daunting task of closing four open permits on his own home. During the course of what proved to be an eight month project, and after assisting friends with open permit problems on their own homes, it was determined there was a business and social need that had to be filled. Thus, Open Permit Services was founded. 

Today, more permits are closed in eight days than in eight months. Open Permit Services enjoys the reputation of being the premier specialists in the unique field of assisting property owners and lenders in their effort to clear up this special problem, one that exists throughout the State, yet is epidemic in South Florida.

Hurricane Andrew struck our community with a unique force and left an horrific problem in its wake. In addition to re-building immediately after the storm, Miami-Dade County is still 'cleaning up' the mess which that monumental task left behind. There are literally hundreds of thousands of expired building permits which still must be closed. Depending on which community the property is located in: unincorporated Miami-Dade County, the City of Miami, the Village of Pinecrest, Broward or Palm Beach County, etc. the rules, regulations, and procedures to be followed, vary. Costs, too, are determined by the building department with jurisdiction, as well as the nature of the corrections required to bring the previously performed work into compliance with the then-current building code.
