FL Supreme Court decision affects beachfront property owners' rights

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Imagine that you own a beachfront property on Florida's Gulf of Mexico. Your seaward property line is defined as the Erosion Control Line ... which means your land has contact with the Gulf.

Along comes the government with a beach renourishment project which adds tons of sand, effectively pushing the water's edge back and cutting off your property's contact with the water.

Can the government do that? The Supreme Court said they can!

Very interesting. I know there is typically a public right along the beach anyway.
