Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida has established state-specific property transfer requirements in addition to the federal requirements for solid waste facilities and activities in wetlands that require environmental resource permits (ERPs) and in coastal areas that require coastal construction permits. In addition, when any building is sold or rented in the state, a radon notice must be provided on at least one document at or before the time of sale or rental. See the national section PROPERTY TRANSFER for information on the federal requirements.
